Workshop on gender pharmaceutics

Could gender equality be a competitive advantage, facilitating better pharmacological research, knowledge and practices? 

Gender has a profound impact on most aspects of human life including health, disease and medical science; pharmacology is no exception. There are gendered differences and inequalities regarding clinical research, prescription, physiology, effects and side-effects of most medical drugs. The workshop will aim at a visualization of several gendered aspects of medicine and pharmacology. Some difficulties in applying a gender perspective on medical science will be examined, but we will also look into the possibilities to do better science and research (and in the end better pharmacological treatment) taking gender into account as a creative and inspiring perspective.
