International Forum on Women’s Brain and Mental Health

Sex & Gender Differences in Mental and Neurological Disease: The gateway to precision medicine


This flagship event is organized by the Women’s Brain Project (WBP). The Forum is more than just a conventional scientific meeting. This event’s main goal is to bring together experts and representatives from a wide range of scientific disciplines and various fields of practice contributing to the study and improvement of mental and brain health. Moreover, the inclusion of patients, caregivers and other individuals impacted by brain and mental health issues in their daily life keeps the ongoing debate relevant and focused. By actively involving medical professionals, technology experts, life and social scientists, industry, policy makers, researchers, caregivers, and patients, WBP strives to facilitate an open and transdisciplinary collaboration. In this way, all stakeholders have an equal voice in the constructive and actionable discussions on considering the influence of sex and gender in brain and mental health research.

The Forum on Women’s Brain and Mental Health will be held on 19 and 20 September 2020.


Due to the developing health and economic situation across the globe, and the associated uncertainties regarding health and safety, transportation, catering, and access issues, we are exploring different formats for the International Forum on Sex and Gender differences in Brain and Mental Health (for example, we may decide to make the event partially or completely virtual).
We will inform you about our plans for the Forum by May 30, 2020.

Until then, we recommend that you do not book flights or hotels even if you had confirmed your participation, and we are at your disposal should you have any questions or concerns.
We wish you, your family, your friends, and everyone around the globe health, well-being, and solidarity.
