From the Introduction: As the National Institutes of Health (NIH) Office of Research on Women's Health (ORWH) prepared for the events celebrating its 20th Anniversary in 2010, at which time a revised research agenda would be unveiled with goals and strategies for the future, it seemed equally important to highlight some of the progress and achievements in women's health research during the years of ORWH's existence. Looking back over so much that had been accomplished during these decades, as recorded in the voluminous biennial reports (see Appendix) that describe the totality of ORWH programs and selected highlights from the NIH Institutes and Centers (ICs), the information was remarkable in its scope. It was decided that as the strategic plan for future research was introduced, it was important to have a distillation of landmark studies and seminal research or programs that represent some of the multiple aspects of past progress in women's health and sex differences research. What started as a collection of two or three brief examples from each IC was eventually expanded into this extensive and exciting document. This occurred because of the overwhelming and enthusiastic response of the ICs through the NIH internal advisory Coordinating Committee on Research on Women's Health (CCRWH), composed of IC directors or their designees. The ORWH proudly presents this report, entitled Highlights of NIH Women's Health and Sex Differences Research, 1990-2010, in which the ICs themselves have identified their best examples of women's health and sex differences research. It is even more encouraging to note that these highlights by no means are intended as a comprehensive list, but represent "snapshots" of examples from the 20 years of ORWH's existence. It should also be noted that woven across the report are such overarching themes as genetic and molecular research, clinical trials and translational studies, prevention research, global health concerns, and minority health and health disparities

Women in biomedical research : best practices for sustaining career success : meeting proceedings, March 4, 2008, National Institutes of Health, Bethesda, MD( Book )

3 editions published between 2008 and 2010 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This NIH conference proceedings compiled by former WUMS student Dr. Barbara Alving highlights best practices for recruiting and retaining women scientists, geared to overcoming leaks in the career pipeline due to "unintentional biases, outdated institutional policies and structures." Duke Dean Nancy Andrews cites the need for women in science to have a safe way to speak out about their stories and be heard, as well as good practices beginning with institutional equity checks. WUMS's own Tim Ley sees women's attrition reflecting a career path created by men, for men, calling for a dramatic change in the culture of academic medicine. Phoebe Leboy (AWIS) also underscores unsupportive institutional cultures, structures, practices, and viewpoints. Best practices include making a business case for recruitment and retention of talent, need for commitment at the top, meaningful incentives, and accountability. Institutions can't just expect faculty to obtain grants, conduct research, and publish results, but must provide fair access to protected time and laboratory resources, for example bridge funding between grants. Jeremy Berg of NIGMS urges data to convince both skeptics and leadership, and pushes for decisive actions rather than just more and more studies. The book has a helpful bibliography and identifies key contacts on women's issues
