Exploring the many dimensions of sex and gender in the genomics era: Clarifying complexities in light of social and genomic advances and their histories

Event Description

This public two-day National Institutes of Health (NIH) symposium brings together experts from the biological and social sciences to clarify and contextualize – but not resolve - the complexities around sex, gender, and genomics by considering them in their scientific, ethical, and historical contexts. These interdisciplinary conversations will aid scientists, policymakers, and the public in understanding the many dimensions of sex and sex characteristics and their relationships with gender. 

This symposium is organized by the National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI), the Sexual and Gender Minority Research Office (SGMRO), and the Office of Research on Women’s Health (ORWH). 

The symposium will be recorded and later archived on GenomeTV
