2017 10 17  Press release: Gender in coronary artery disease GENCAD

 The EU funded GENCAD project analysed major differences between women and men in the symptoms, diagnosis and treatment of coronary artery disease (CAD). These differences are still largely unknown in Europe. Lack of consideration impairs treatment of women and men and puts life in danger. To close the gap in awareness and knowledge, the GENCAD project developed factsheets for health care professionals and the general public. They are based on approx. 1000 references, and truly reflect the international knowledge on gender specific needs in CAD .

BIH Jihanna Quandt Professorship

Following is letter from Prof. Vera Regitz-Zagrosek which may be of interest to IGM members:

Let me draw your attention to the call of the Berlin institute of Health for the Johanna Quandt Professorships. https://www.bihealth.org/en/article/bih-johanna-quandt-professorships-388/

The BIH JOHANNA QUANDT PROFESSORSHIPS are W 2 temporary Professorships with full tenured- track. They are tailored to women academics and feature thematic openness. The specific factors are the translational orientation and their innovative and interdisciplinary design. Funding volume is up to 500.000 EUR a year limited to a period of five years. The opportunity of a fully tenured chair with W2 or W3 salary is included.
I believe this is an outstanding opportunity to establish an active center for gender research in Berlin and to bring women’s academic expertise to Berlin. I would be pleased and honored, if you could consider this opportunity for you, for your friends and colleagues or Juniors that would be interested. I’m available for any further questions.
Herzliche Grüße/Kind regards

Prof. Dr. med. Dr. h.c. Vera Regitz-Zagrosek
Director, Institute of Gender in Medicine (GiM)
