About the Program

The BIRCWH program at Northwestern University is sponsored by Grant No. K12 HD055884,"Career Development in Women's Health" (CDWH) from the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD), the Office of Research on Women’s Health (ORWH) and the National Institute of Arthritis and Musculoskeletal and Skin Diseases (NIAMS) at the National Institutes of Health (NIH). We are grateful for this funding to support our on-going work.

Our mentoring program supports the research career development of junior faculty members who have recently completed clinical training or postdoctoral fellowships, and who are about to engage in one or more of the following:

basic research

translational research

clinical research

health services research relevant to women's health

This program uses the NIH Mentored Research Scientist Development Program Award (K12) mechanism available since fiscal year 2000.

The Goals of the Program

Your program experience will accomplish this by bridging

advanced training with independent research, and

scientific disciplines with your areas of interest.

This has increased and will continue to increase the number and skills of investigators at awardee institutions. Our mentored research experience has been shown to lead to a satisfying and independent scientific career addressing women's health concerns.

We invite you to join us.
