The Center for Research In Reproduction and Women’s Health Inaugural Symposium was held Friday 10/14 in Detroit, MI and was a great success by many measures. We convened in person to learn of the diverse research topics that spanned the continuum of women’s health. We saw our unique strength of discovery across the boundaries of molecular, cell, epidemiology, public health sciences and clinical services to investigate pressing women’s health challenges. We learned the early benefits our internal funding of pilot projects that have already resulted in NIH grant submissions.
