Methods and Techniques for Integrating Biological Variable Sex in Preclinical Research - AM

One of the fundamental variables in preclinical biomedical research is sex: whether a cell, tissue, or animal is female or male. Biological sex is an important consideration for this research that underlies drug development, clinical trials, and prevention approaches. Learn how to incorporate sex to strengthen scientific design from leaders in the field through this recorded full-day meeting hosted by the NIH Office of Research on Women’s Health.

In this video covering the morning sessions, learn more about the importance of reproducibility in biomedical research, the concept of including male and female subjects in studies, and the impact of including or not including sex as a basic biological variable.
