QuantOCancer ERA Chair @ Champalimaud Foundation

This tailored workshop for CCU researchers will address your concerns around this topic and offer training and expert advice on facilitating integration of sex and gender dimension analysis into your research design. In light of the increasing focus from certain funding entities this consideration is pertinent for competitive research funds and applies broadly to research practice at all career stages. 

Facilitated by an external expert, Prof. Sabine Oertelt-Prigione, this workshop will also draw on in-house researchers’ experience (Fatima Cardoso, Clara Ferreira) on how their research in both humans and non-human animal models has benefited significantly from taking sex and/or gender into consideration. 

The ultimate goal is to raise awareness on how considering these themes in the way our research projects and standards are designed can influence the quality and usefulness of the results, and discuss tools to do so effectively.

Sabine Oertelt-Prigione

Prof. Sabine Oertelt-Prigione is a physician, researcher and organizational consultant. She studied medicine at the Universitá degli Studi in Milan, Italy, and completed her residency and fellowship in Internal Medicine at the same university, before moving for a postdoc to the University of California at Davis, CA, USA. In 2009 she moved to Berlin to join the Institute of Gender in Medicine (GiM) at the Charité. While working at the GiM she also obtained a Master's degree in public health by LSHTM in London and certified training as a systemic organizational consultant from the Artop Institute of Humboldt University in Berlin. Since 2017 she holds the chair of gender medicine at the Radboud University in Nijmegen, the Netherlands.

The work conducted at her chair encompasses three areas: a) advocacy and promotion of gender medicine with colleagues,students and the broader public, b) implementation of gender medicine in clinical practice and research through co-operations with experts within clinical disciplines (e.g. cardiology, neurology, oncology) and c) research about gender inequity and discrimination within organizations and consultancy for its prevention.

Next to her academic activities, she works pro-bono as a coach for young female researchers, as an expert advisor for ASTIA.org (USA) and as a mentor for Rockstart (NL) and W Lounge (DE).
