There will be many funding, training, and educational opportunities available to amplify and expand the research focus of the Brigham/Harvard ROSA Center. To view our current ROSA Trainees and Awardees, click here.

ROSA Scholar Program

Applications are open for the current round of the ROSA Scholar Awards. More information can be found on our Funding Opportunities page. Applications are due May 15.

The ROSA Scholar program will equip early-stage faculty or established investigators who wish to refocus their careers on sex-differences and women’s health translational research with critical tools to become leading researchers in the field through a mentored research project with the successful Scholar going on to receive NIH K- or R- level funding. Scholars will participate in robust educational and career development programming which will enable them to develop an understanding of women’s health and how to incorporate sex as a biologic variable (SABV) when planning, analyzing, and reporting data. Scholar programming will be led by Kathryn Rexrode, MD, MPH and Janet Rich- Edwards, ScD, MPH, SCORE Career Enhancement Core (CEC) co-Leaders and will leverage the robust research infrastructure and expertise in women’s health, sleep medicine, neuroscience, dementia, and cardiometabolic disease at Brigham and Women’s Hospital and Harvard Medical School.
ROSA Pilot Award Program

The ROSA Center Pilot program is for early-stage investigators (postdocs and junior faculty). These Pilot awards are perfect for investigators seeking to obtain preliminary data in order to facilitate applications for future NIH K- or R-level awards. Up to four $50,000, 2-year awards will be granted. All awards must align with the ROSA Center and at least one of the awards will be reserved for projects that are focused on menopause.

Access the request for applications and learn more here.

Applications for this round of the ROSA Center Pilot Award Program will be open from September 6 through October 24. Projects will occur starting in 2023.

On October 7, the Connors Center team will host an information session regarding all 2022-23 funding opportunities. Register here.
