  • Uitnodiging: Gendered Innovations Aandacht voor gender in het onderzoek onontkoombaarls onderzoek maar gericht is op de helft van de wereldpopulatie, hoe innovatief en relevant kan het dan nog zijn? Wanneer we bij het opzetten en uitvoeren van onderzoek voorbijgaan aan sekse- en genderverschillen kan er veel fout gaan. Zo zijn hart- en vaatziekten doodsoorzaak nummer één onder vrouwen in Europa, maar werd het fenomeen jarenlang alleen bij mannen onderzocht. Preklinisch onderzoek vindt voornamelijk plaats aan mannelijke proefdieren en de sekse van cellen en weefsels wordt nog nauwelijks vermeld. Maar ook binnen andere vakgebieden, zoals klimaatbeleid, transport, milieu en technologie is er een wereld te winnen met aandacht voor sekse- en genderverschillen. Datum & tijd: 2 juli 2015, 18.00 – 20.00 uur Plaats ...

The KNAW wanted to know how (inter)national policy is shaping the PhDexperience and what issues arise from the quickly changing landscape ...
