This public, two-day National Institutes of Health (NIH) symposium is organized by the National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI), the Sexual and Gender Minority Research Office (SGMRO), and the Office of Research on Women’s Health (ORWH). It brings together experts from the biological and social sciences to clarify and contextualize — but not resolve — the complexities around sex, gender, and genomics by considering them in their scientific, ethical, and historical contexts. These interdisciplinary conversations will aid scientists, policymakers, and the public in understanding the many dimensions of sex and sex characteristics and their relationships with gender.

Registration is required to attend this event on Zoom.
