Sex/Gender-Specific COVID-19 Outcomes and Management Relevant for HLBS Disorders: From Bench to Bedside, June 16-17, 2022

About this event

Please use this link to join the Zoom Webinar (June 16 and 17):

Join the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI) for a virtual scientific event on June 16-17, 2022 that looks at the differences in COVID-19 outcomes due to sex and gender. This NIH workshop, hosted by NHLBI, brings together basic and clinical scientists to review the state of the science in sex/gender differences in COVID-19 outcomes relevant to heart, lung, blood, and sleep (HLBS) disorders. Specifically, the workshop aims to identify key knowledge gaps and explore research opportunities to improve our understanding of these differences in COVID-19 outcomes. This knowledge may improve our ability to tailor prevention, intervention, and implementation strategies for COVID-19-related HLBS disorders.

Scientific collaborators from the NIH Office of Research on Women’s Health, the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development, the National Institute of Minority and Health Disparities, and National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases will complement the NHLBI perspective on the research landscape.

Workshop Highlights:

David Goff, M.D., Ph.D., NHLBI Director of the Division of Cardiovascular Sciences and Janine Austin Clayton, M.D., NIH Associate Director for Research on Women’s Health and Director of the NIH Office of Research on Women’s Health will provide opening remarks. View the workshop program book and agenda.


Sabine Oertelt-Prigione, M.D., Ph.D., MScPH, of Radboud University in the Netherlands will give the keynote talk on the epidemiology of COVID-19 focusing on sex and gender. A leader in the field of sex/ gender-sensitive research, she currently is examining ways to investigate gender in medical research and implement sex- and gender-sensitive research into practice.

The meeting will take place virtually, June 16-17, 2022 (times are listed below):

June 16, 2022: 11:00 a.m.–5:30 p.m. EDT
