Including sex and gender in (bio)medical research design

Sabine Oertelt-Prigione is a physician specialized in internal medicine (at the University of Milan, Italy) and public health (at LSHTM, London, UK). She has been working on the implications of sex and gender in biomedical and public health research since 2004. During her years at UC Davis (California, USA) she explored sex differences in autoimmunity and after moving to the Institute of Gender in Medicine at Charité, Universitätsmedizin (Berlin, Germany) in 2009, she started focusing on gender-sensitive prevention. Currently, she is the “Strategic Chair for Gender in Primary and Transmural Care” at the Department of Primary and Community Care, Radboud University, Nijmegen, The Netherlands. She developed the first systematic database on sex and gender-specific literature and co-edited one of the first textbooks on gender medicine. In 2014 she won the Max Rubner Prize for Innovations of the Charité Foundation, for the first project in the field of sexual harassment in German hospitals.  Her main interests are the development of innovative methods for gender-sensitive prevention and teaching and the analysis of implementation strategies for sex and gender-sensitive medicine.

This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 665937.
