YaleWomen Webinars presents: You've Got Male. Now What About Women? Sex and Gender Equity in Health Research with Carolyn Mazure, of Women's Health Research at Yale. https://medicine.yale.edu/whr/
Carolyn Mazure is the Norma Weinberg Spungen and Joan Lebson Bildner Professor in Women’s Health and Professor of Psychiatry and Psychology at Yale.
Dr. Mazure came to Yale for her fellowship training after completing graduate school and three years at the National Institutes of Health (NIH). Immediately following her postgraduate training, she was invited to join the Yale faculty.
Dr. Mazure’s contributions in women’s health began with her own internationally recognized research in the field of depression. Focusing on the prominent gender differences in this disorder, Dr. Mazure was the first to demonstrate how stress is a more potent pathway to depression in women than men.
Understanding the value of uncovering gender differences in the field of depression, combined with recognizing that such data are sorely lacking across many fields of biomedical research, Dr. Mazure designed and launched Women’s Health Research at Yale, the university’s interdisciplinary research center on health and gender.
The center initiates and supports innovative biomedical studies to advance the health of women, shares findings with the public, and provides mentored training in interdisciplinary team science. Since its inception in 1998, the center has been recognized as a national model for launching new research on the influence of sex and gender on human health and translating findings into practice.
Working to insure that there is a national commitment to women’s health research, Dr. Mazure has provided testimony to the U.S. Congress, served as a fellow for the Government Reform Committee, and was on the planning committee for the First White House Conference on Mental Health. She is currently a member of the Advisory Committee for the NIH Office for Research on Women’s Health.
