10th Annual Johns Hopkins Women’s Health Research Symposium:
“Sex and Gender Aspects of Diseases and Health Across the Lifespan”
The Foundation supported the work of two young investigators who presented their data at this symposium. Cardiologist Dr. Rosanne Rouf developed a mouse model for the investigation of mitral valve prolapse, (a common finding in women). Developmental psychologist Dr. Kristin Voegtline is studying the mechanisms by which the brain becomes male or female during development. These young women were the 2016 winners of the $50,000 grant from the Foundation for Gender-Specific Medicine. Dr. Legato has announced two more $25,000 grants to be awarded to Johns Hopkins later this year.
