Building Interdisciplinary Research Careers in Women’s Health (BIRCWH) Program

The goal of the Utah BIRCWH Program is to increase, via a mentored research and career development experience, the number of investigators (Scholars) from the entire spectrum of University of Utah junior faculty who will develop successful independent scientific careers as principal investigators.  Successful Scholars will, upon completion of the program, be engaged in fundable interdisciplinary research relevant to women’s health and sex/gender influences on health and disease.
