The Oregon BIRCWH (Building Interdisciplinary Research Careers in Women's Health) Program and the OHSU Center for Women's Health are proud to announce the 2019 Northwest Women's Health and Sex/Gender Differences Research Conference at Oregon Health & Science University.

This full-day conference is designed to ignite cross-institution, multidisciplinary research partnerships within the Portland area and the greater state of Oregon. Previous conferences have been incredibly successful in developing new partnerships that have progressed to grant proposals, funding, and research.

We use several innovative approaches to help investigators learn about other institutions and investigators to promote new collaborations: 

  • Nationally-recognized keynote speakers: Diane Magrane, MD and Katherine Hartmann, MD, PhD

  • Expert panelists from NW research organizations highlight current research activities and future opportunities

  • Round tables for participants and institutions to meet

  • Poster session for attendees to highlight current work

  • Research speed networking for attendees to meet others with shared interests

  • Dissemination of national and local funding opportunities
