Title of Collaborative Activity:

Sex Differences Meeting Planning Committee

Description of Collaborative Activity:

Understanding sex differences within animal models is needed to develop effective biodosimeters and MCMs. Therefore, a meeting is planned to 1) explore sex differences in metabolomics and/or other biomarkers that may track with assessing acute radiation syndrome (ARS), delayed effects of acute radiation exposure (DEARE), and/or predicting the efficacy of MCMs; 2) look at effects of synchronizing estrocycle in pre-clinical studies, and pheromones when co-housing male and female animals; 3) explore regulatory challenges in clinical studies involving representation from both sexes and policies that influence inclusion of women in research, and the gaps that exist in these practices. Meeting to be held Oct 25-26, 2021.
