The Women's Health Research Institute at Northwestern University seeks to improve all dimensions of women’s health and well-being by accelerating the rate of discovery in sex- and gender-based research and  care.  It is composed of a unique community of researchers, clinicians, students, and advocates affiliated with Northwestern University who are dedicated to improving women’s health. 

Our mandate is unique, and with the counsel of our multidisciplinary Leadership Council of basic science, translational, and clinical experts, our work extends across all disciplines far beyond the reproductive system.
