Gender-Specific Medicine Lecture Available Online
Last fall, OWH sponsored a one-day scientific symposium on women’s health for FDA scientists and reviewers. The keynote lecture at the symposium is now available to the public. In her talk entitled “Gender-Specific Medicine and the Genome: A Complex and Evolving Tale”, Marianne J. Legato, M.D. discussed the impact of genomics on sex differences and gender-specific medicine. Dr. Legato is an internationally known expert in gender-specific medicine.
The symposium was the second in a series of OWH scientific seminars for FDA staff designed to facilitate dialogue and collaboration on regulatory research addressing sex differences and health conditions that solely or disproportionately impact women. Through these meetings, OWH aims to encourage the sharing of research findings that may not only impact Agency regulatory decision-making but also public health.
