The Women’s Brain Project is an international non-profit organisation advocating for women’s brain and mental health.
Founded in 2016, we are a group of scientists specialised in various disciplines including medicine, neuroscience, psychology, and pharmacy. Women are at higher risk of several brain diseases, such as Alzheimer’s Disease, depression, migraine, anxiety disorders and multiple sclerosis. Moreover, inequities in the socio-economic landscape lead to higher exposure for girls and women in relation to specific health risk factors.
Through our activities, we collaborate with policymakers, pharmaceutical companies, caregivers, patients, relatives, and other stakeholders to advance a global discussion on gender and sex determinants of vulnerability to brain and mental disease.
The Women’s Brain Project (WBP) has four key workstreams:
- WS1 – Pre-clinical science
- WS2 – Clinical science and policy
- WS3 – Caregivers and socioeconomic themes
- WS4 – New technologies
Everything starts from the four workstreams and every workstream has different activities in the following areas:
