Overview

The Women's Health Research Center at Mayo Clinic is focused on understanding and improving women's health across their life span.

Studied in the center are conditions that are:

  • Unique to women, such as gynecologic disorders and many breast conditions
  • More common in women, such as osteoporosis and autoimmune diseases
  • Expressed differently in women, such as cardiovascular disease and irritable bowel syndrome

The center is built on Mayo Clinic's strong foundation of basic, translational and clinical research, as well as its many women's health-related clinical services, at its campuses in Arizona, Florida and Minnesota.

By expanding existing initiatives and developing new multidisciplinary collaborations, the Women's Health Research Center is advancing the science of women's health and ensuring that sex- and gender-based perspectives are incorporated into the design, conduct and reporting of research at Mayo Clinic.
