MLSC Launches 2022-2023 Women’s Health Programming Round

The MLSC is excited to launch the next round of programming for its Women’s Health Initiative: First Look Awards, Innovation Grants, and Collaboration program.

The deadline to apply for the 2022-2023 program year is Jan. 12, 2023.

First Look Awards: In collaboration with the Mary Horrigan Connors Center for Women’s Health and Gender Biology at Brigham and Women’s Hospital (BWH), Harvard Medical School, supporting translational research at Massachusetts research institutions that furthers our understanding of sex and gender differences especially for diseases or conditions that affect women exclusively, predominately, or differentially.

Innovation Grants: Focus on projects with translational potential and preliminary supporting data, but still require a key set of proof-of-concept experiments prior to attracting a commercial partner or spinning out into a new company.

Collaboration program: Supports collaborative projects that aim to improve the discovery, technical innovation, and/or analysis of datasets to answer pressing life science questions around women’s health.
