Other Research Grants

The Society/Pfizer Women's Health Research Scholars Grants for Faculty Development in Women's Health Program represents the mutual commitment of the Society for Women's Health Research and Pfizer to the scientific and academic advancement of M.D. or D.O. medical school faculty members interested in advancing the science of women's health. The Scholars Grants Program provides research and training opportunities for physician researchers who wish to pursue basic study in biologic mechanisms of diseases that affect women.

Candidates must indicate a serious commitment to research involving the biological mechanisms of diseases in women in one of three areas: cardiovascular disease, mental health, and reproductive physiology. In addition, the applicant must have completed his or her clinical training and have a university appointment at the commencement of the grant.

"Tremendous strides have been made in the area of women's health, but the research community needs a deeper understanding of the sex differences in presentation, manifestation and treatment of a broad range of diseases that affect women," said Phyllis Greenberger, executive director of the Society for Women's Health Research. "The Scholars Grants program will support physician-scientists in their quest for knowledge about basic mechanisms of diseases that may lead to further discovery of effective treatments."

The Pfizer/SWHR grant will not be awarded in 2004, as the goals for this grant are being re-examined.   For more information about the grants visit the Pfizer Web site.
