The Women’s Health Research Institute at Northwestern University invites you to attend the 2nd Annual Symposium on Sex Inclusion in Biomedical Research. This day-long symposium promotes the advancement of sex-inclusive research within the basic, translational, and clinical research fields. It fosters knowledge amongst interdisciplinary communities who currently conduct or are interested in sex-based research. 

This year's theme, "A Spotlight on Autoimmunity," will feature keynote and plenary lectures from nationally recognized experts in sex-based immunology including Drs. Jayne Danska, Sabra Klein, and Maureen Su. In addition, the symposium will feature a panel discussion on the state of sex-inclusive science, invited abstract presentations, and a poster session.

Abstract submissions are currently being accepted for both oral and poster presentations which highlight sex-inclusive or sex-based research. Submission guidelines and additional information can be found here.

The symposium is open to the public and all neighboring institutions. Students, post-docs, faculty, and staff are encouraged to attend. Breakfast, lunch, and coffee breaks are included in the registration costs. Registration is limited, so reserve your spot today!
