About Core Networks

The Center for Women's Health Research at UNC has witnessed the trend of interactions between researchers and the sharing of information often happening spontaneously without any defined focus.

Through the establishment of five Core Networks the Center aims to ensure these interactions happen

Less by chance and more by design.

The networks will be largely concerned with how sex and gender impact the following areas:

  • Obesity - now networking and collaborating!
  • Perinatal Health (coming soon)
  • Cardiovascular Health (coming soon)
  • Cancers (coming soon)
  • Mental Health & Substance Abuse (coming soon)

The first Core Network at CWHR is focused on Sex and Gender Differences in Obesity. If you would like to learn more about the network and how to join contact us.

We will continue to add networks and information as our vision progresses. Until that time, please contact us if you would like to be updated on our progress or added to a list of potential network members.
