European Gender Medicine Network (EUGenMed) Kick-off conference

7 April 2014, Brussels

Research addressing Sex and Gender (S&G) in biomedical sciences and health research is a novel and highly promising field. Interaction of S&G related mechanisms leads to different manifestation of frequent diseases such as infarction, heart failure, diabetes, rheumatic disease in women and men. Research in this area will lead to novel, better targeted and therefore more efficient treatment strategies than the previous global approaches and will increase opportunities for prevention and healthy life expectancy.
