Dr. Joffe is the Paula A. Johnson Professor of Psychiatry in the Field of Women’s Health at Harvard Medical School and the Executive Director of the Connors Center for Women’s Health and Gender Biology as well as the Executive Vice Chair for Academic and Faculty Affairs in the Department of Psychiatry at Brigham and Women’s Hospital, where she founded and directs the Women’s Hormones and Aging Research Program.
As the Director of the Connors Center, she oversees a research program with two main pillars — equity in novel therapeutics and the role of stress on the health of women. She launched the First.In.Women Precision Medicine Platform to ensure that women benefit equally in the development of novel therapeutics. First.In.Women stimulates medical research and partners across the bioscience ecosystem to advance sex-specific and sex-differentiating knowledge in treating diseases that are exclusive, predominate, or differential in women. To advance stress research, she developed the Women’s Health Interdisciplinary Stress Program of Research (WHISPR) which lay the foundation for the 2020 awarding of the NIH U54 Center grant (Reproductive Outcomes of Stress and Aging) through the SCORE (Specialized Centers of Research Excellence on Sex Differences) mechanism at NIH.
