Welcome to the Ann S. Bowers Women's Brain Health Initiative

Most of what we know about health and disease centers on the male body. Neuroscientists overlook aspects of the human condition relevant to half of the global population (e.g. the menstrual cycle, the pill, pregnancy, menopause). The Ann S. Bowers WBHI advances the study of women's brain health through deeply collaborative science. By integrating research activities across campuses and bringing together world-class expertise in neuroimaging, computer science/AI and healthcare, the University of California is in a unique position to lead these efforts in partnership with institutions around the world.

The Bowers WBHI is driven by a radically simple idea: progress in neuroscience will flourish when the health of men and women are valued equally.
