Our mission is to promote inclusivity and scientific rigor in the study of sex variability and women's health.

Best Practices to Promote Rigor and Reproducibility in the Era of Sex-inclusive Research

Janet Rich-Edwards and I use the "4 C's" framework to discuss how to best test for and report sex variability.

Dr. Maney heads to Harvard as a Radcliffe Fellow

 

I'm thrilled to have the opportunity to spend a full academic year 2023-2024 collaborating with colleagues at Harvard. I'll be helping to developing resources to make biomedical research more sex/gender inclusive while at the same time more rigorous.

Best of all, I joined the GenderSci Lab!

Identifying Barriers to Implementation of SABV policy 

 

With my collaborators Katrina Karkazis and Kimbi Hagen, I examined the implementation of the NIH policy on Sex as a Biological Variable (SABV). This project was funded by the Emory Specialized Center for Research Excellence on Sex Differences.

Sex-based Data in the Spotlight

What counts as evidence for a sex difference? Our study in eLife shows that claims of sex differences in the biological sciences are often not backed by sound statistics.
