Women's Global Health Institute

The health of women and girls is of particular concern as a result of gender-related biological differences, socioeconomic status, and disparities in research involving women participants. At Purdue, we deliver solutions through research, training, and assistance to technology commercialization that address these challenges, both nationally and internationally, through our work at the Women’s Global Health Institute (WGHI). The Institute combines strong technology, engineering, natural and social sciences, and is a hub for interdisciplinary research focusing on: 1) Wellness and disease prevention; 2) Early detection and effective interventions for prevention and treatment of diseases in Bone Health, Women’s Cancers, and Neurodegenerative Disorders.

The Institute aspires to deliver meaningful solutions to the challenges in women’s health by securing partnership and support for research and training from government, private foundations, and corporate companies.
