Sex & Gender Science (SGS)

The field in which sex differences and gender are studied with transdisciplinary methodologies, to advance our understanding that neither is independent of the other, and that sex and gender differences happen in the context of environment and social interactions. The field embraces biological, social, cultural, technological, and human sciences, and tries to understand how genes, environments, social stigma, and other conditions, as well as other intersecting factors, combine. A key question in SGS is:

How does this combination of different biologies as well as social outcomes and cultural influences lead to unique health outcomes, economies, and technological advances?

Ultimately, SGS's goal is to use this knowledge to improve the health, wellness, and equity of all.
