Join GWIS at the Science Cafe: When Mice Are Men

Join fellow GWIS Research Triangle members for a discussion about sex equity in biomedical research at the Science Cafe: When Mice Are Men at the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences.

In medicine, men and women experience illness and respond to drugs differently, but scientists primarily study males when developing treatments for both sexes. University of North Carolina surgeon scientist Melina Kibbe, MD, will discuss sex equity throughout the biomedical research pipeline: from cell research to human clinical trials. Dr. Kibbe’s advocacy around this issue has resulted in policy changes from the National Institute of Health, the Government Accountability Organization, and the Food and Drug Administration.

When: 7:00 – 8:30 PM Thursday, July 27th              

Where: Daily Planet Cafe at the Nature Research Center, 11 W Jones St, Raleigh

This event is free! RSVP here by July 25th.
