Women’s Brain Project
an international organization advocating for women’s brain and mental health
Founded in 2016, we are a group of scientists hailing from various disciplines including medicine, neuroscience, psychology, pharmacy and communication who work together with caregivers, patients and their relatives, policymakers and other stakeholders.
The Women’s Brain Project (WBP) aims to stimulate a global discussion on gender and sex determinants of female vulnerability to brain and mental disease.
We propose a new, personalized way to develop and perform medical treatments, caregiving and prevention strategies together with novel technologies development, based on consideration of sex and gender differences. By promoting a scientific discussion on the specific vulnerability of the female brain to particular mental and brain diseases, WBP advocates for the development of sex- specific measures to foster mental health
WBP aims to address these issues through scientific research, debate, public engagement and advocacy.
“Identifying specific needs related to women’s brain health, advocating for change, and positioning the findings for the benefit of the society.”
