Since its foundation, over 20 years ago, the Mary Horrigan Connors Center for Women’s Health and Gender Biology has provided both women’s health and of sex- and gender-informed research with a distinct academic home, but a cross-departmental presence and impact. This positioning has allowed the Connors Center to pursue a comprehensive array of activities that include innovative research to advance understanding, diagnosis, and treatment for a large variety of conditions affecting women exclusively or differentially.

In line with this mission, the Connors Center is launching the Sex/gender Informed Research Collaborative Think Tank (SIRCTT), in collaborations with representatives from different MGB (Mass General Brigham) Institutions (the SIRCTT Advisory Group), with the goal of further stimulating research across the MGB System and provide researchers from different fields and with a common interest in women’s health and sex/gender-informed research with the opportunity to foster collaborations.

Researchers joining SIRCTT will take part in a comprehensive educational and networking program and meet with MGB experts in women’s health and sex/gender-informed research to share knowledge, land about available resources and career development opportunities. Participants will also have the opportunity to network within groups of researchers working in similar or complementary fields. Our goal is to position participants with knowledge and connections that will allow them to pursue funding and projects (publications, symposia) that advance our understanding of how sex and gender impact health.

If you are interested in learning more about the program and/or in joining it as a participant or supporting it as a steering committee member, please complete the form below.
