The NICHD participates in the BIRCWH program, which is led by the NIH Office of Research on Women's Health (ORWH), along with nearly a dozen other NIH Institutes and Centers. The NICHD Fertility and Infertility (FI) Branch (formerly the Reproductive Sciences Branch) administers a large number of the BIRCWH awards. These research centers aim to provide bridging support to physician-scientists as they move between completion of clinical or post-doctoral training and an independent research career. Research addressed by BIRCWH research spans the spectrum of women's health topics, and the program is open to all types of clinicians and non-clinicians.
