Modified: November 21, 2017

The Women’s Health Research Institute at Northwestern University invites postdocs to attend the 2nd Annual Symposium on Sex Inclusion in Biomedical Research taking place on January 25, 2018 on the Chicago campus. 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. Deadline for abstract submissions is December 18.

The symposium is open to the public and all neighboring institutions. Students, postdocs, 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!
