Historically, biomedical research has overlooked the role of sex differences in health and disease. Brigham and Women’s Hospital has been a pivotal leader in challenging that trend. As a cognitive neuroscientist studying the role of sex hormones in memory circuitry, training at Harvard Medical School and BWH among pioneers in the field of women’s health research has been particularly rewarding. A K12 career development award from the NIH and the Office of Research on Women’s Health has allowed me to develop my own body of research, while training in neuroendocrinology, aging genetics, and cognitive neuroscience.
