UCLA CTSI and the Iris Cantor-UCLA Women's Health Center have selected five projects to receive the CTSI and Iris Cantor Women's Health Center Awards to support research intended to understand human sex differences in health and disease and medical issues and diseases unique to women, as well as to develop and test clinical interventions for women.
CTSI and Iris Cantor Women's Health Center Pilot and Augmentation Awards provide researchers with a one-year award worth up to $30,000. Fellows are awarded a one-year fellowship for $20,000. Awards were open to researchers and candidates at Westwood/Santa Monica Campus, Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, the Lundquist Institute at Harbor-UCLA and Charles R. Drew University of Medicine and Science, who perform women’s health research, and/or research where exploration of sex and gender-based differences is relevant.
