About the seminar series Measuring Sex – Discussing Gender: Research Implications for health:
Many researchers in the field of health sciences are not familiar enough with the concepts of sex and gender, relevant theories and why these factors matter to research and how they are critical to study design, application of theory and analyzing findings. At the same time, funders are increasingly requiring applicants to address aspects of sex and gender in their research projects, asking them to move beyond reporting the gender ratio in research teams, to addressing these issues in the content of the research.
To bridge this gap, doctoral students will in this seminar series and practical workshop gain an understanding of relevant theories of sex and gender through applying them to their own research projects. In addition, the interactive seminars and workshop will enable the students to explore the challenges and opportunities sex and gender will bring to study design, data analysis as well as science communication and funding applications.
