Sex Cells! A workshop on sex- and gender-based analysis plus (SGBA+) in research (November 26, 2019)

Where: de Grandpre Communications Centre, The Neuro

When: Tuesday, November 26, 6–8 p.m.

Considerations of sex and gender are key to conducting inclusive research, building unbiased technology and facilitating equitable healthcare.

Studies that have implemented sex- and gender-based analysis plus (SGBA+) have found sex differences in risk of disease and response to treatments.1,2 They have increased understanding of the relationship between sex and brain function.3,4 SGBA+ has also helped to detect gender and race bias in artificial intelligence, and develop strategies to remove this bias.5 What will you find when you implement SGBA+ in your research?

On November 26, join HBHL and Scientista for Sex Cells!, a workshop on SGBA+ in research, to discuss how you can implement SGBA+ in your work. The workshop will include talks from Krystle van Hoof (Managing Director and CEO, HBHL and past Assistant Director, CIHR Institute of Gender & Health) and Sherri Lee Jones (Postdoctoral Fellow, Research Institute of the McGill University Health Center and Department of Psychiatry, McGill University). The talks will provide an overview of what SGBA+ is, examples of studies that have implemented SGBA+, how SGBA+ can enhance your research, as well as an in-depth discussion of the Four Core Genotypes Model. The talks will be followed by guided group discussions to help you think about how SGBA+ can be implemented in your own research.

All are welcome.
