Building Interdisciplinary Research Careers in Women's Health (BIRCWH) Scholar Program
The Women's Health Research Center's BIRCWH Scholar Program combines advanced training with research independence, in specific scientific disciplines or areas of interest, to provide young researchers with career development opportunities. The program augments participants' research skills through a mentored personalized research experience, leading to an independent scientific career addressing women's health concerns.
Funding for two BIRCWH Scholars is provided by the National Institutes of Health's Office of Research on Women's Health. In recognition of the importance of research on women's health issues and sex-related health differences, Mayo Clinic provides funding for an additional scholar.
As junior faculty members, BIRCWH Scholars conduct research on a wide variety of topics related to women's health. Read about the research interests of current BIRCWH Scholars:
