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 8 and 9 June 2019 at the University of Zurich, Switzerland.
