NIH Sex and Gender Differences in Cancer Virtual Workshop Series

The NIH Sex and Gender Differences in Cancer Virtual Workshop Series will feature four 3-hour virtual sessions on different aspects of this topic between February and June 2024.

This series of free virtual workshops will bring together those that are interested in sex and gender differences in cancer in the areas of basic biology, genomics, epigenetics, immunology, clinical/translational science, as well as population science, to not only learn about the latest research findings but to also identify gaps in our knowledge, identify potential collaborative opportunities, and learn best practices for methodology and reporting.

Commission co-chair Dr. Ophira Ginsburg will speak at the June workshop.

Uniting Voices for Action on Women Cancer in the EMR

Hosted by The Eastern Mediterranean NCD Alliance (EM-NCDA), this convening aims to spotlight women’s cancers, leverage collective efforts to steer discussions towards actionable outcomes, and advocate for gender-sensitive approaches in closing the gap between policy development and implementation in the EMR. Drawing upon the IHE-IAPO Breast Cancer Report and the Lancet Commission on Women, Power, and Cancer, this gathering also aims to galvanize the EMR political commitment and cooperation in ensuring women's cancer remains a central focus on the agenda of the upcoming UN High-Level Meeting on NCDs in 2025.
