The newly established GHDB supports and promotes basic science, translational and clinical research, and research training programs related to gynecologic health in women and adolescent girls. The Branch promotes research in gynecological health through grants, cooperative agreements, and contracts. The Branch portfolio emphasizes studies of the menstrual cycle, uterine fibroids, endometriosis, polycystic ovary syndrome, pelvic floor disorders, and menopause transition/perimenopause, as well as studies of the mechanisms underlying chronic pelvic pain, vulvodynia, and dysmenorrhea. The Branch also supports research training and career development programs of investigators interested in women’s reproductive health. Within this program area, a focus of the Branch is to advance research into selected gynecologic health concerns by sponsoring research efforts on areas that have been either overlooked or underfunded, including reproductive health outcomes in minority women.
