> *Some new research:*
> 1. *One and a half million medical papers reveal a link between author
> gender and attention to gender and sex analysis:* Gender and sex analysis
> is increasingly recognized as a key factor in creating better medical
> research and health care. Using a sample of more than 1.5 million medical
> research papers, our study examined the potential link between women’s
> participation in medical science and attention to gender-related and
> sex-related factors in disease-specific research. Adjusting for variations
> across countries, disease topics and medical research areas, we compared
> the participation of women authors in studies that do and do not involve
> gender and sex analysis. Overall, our results show a robust positive
> correlation between women’s authorship and the likelihood of a study
> including gender and sex analysis. These findings corroborate discussions
> of how women’s participation in medical science links to research outcomes,
> and show the mutual benefits of promoting both the scientific advancement
> of women and the integration of gender and sex analysis into medical
> research. https://www.nature.com/articles/s41562-017-0235-x
> 2. *Organ-on-a-Chip Systems for Women's Health Applications: *Biomedical
> research, for a long time, has paid little attention to the influence of
> sex in many areas of study, ranging from molecular and cellular biology to
> animal models and clinical studies on human subjects. Many studies solely
> rely on male cells/tissues/animals/humans, although there are profound
> differences in male and female physiology, which can significantly impact
> disease mechanisms, toxicity of compounds, and efficacy of pharmaceuticals.
> In vitro systems have been traditionally very limited in their capacity to
> recapitulate female-specific physiology and anatomy such as dynamic
> sex-hormone levels and the complex interdependencies of female reproductive
> tract organs. However, the advent of microphysiological organ-on-a-chip
> systems, which attempt to recreate the 3D structure and function of human
> organs, now gives researchers the opportunity to integrate cells and
> tissues from a variety of individuals. Moreover, adding a dynamic flow
> environment allows mimicking endocrine signaling during the menstrual cycle
> and pregnancy, as well as providing a controlled microfluidic environment
> for pharmacokinetic modeling. This review gives an introduction into
> preclinical and clinical research on women's health and discusses where
> organ-on-a-chip systems are already utilized or have the potential to
> deliver new insights and enable entirely new types of studies.

> 3 *Essential metrics for assessing sex & gender integration in health
> research proposals involving human participants:* Integrating sex and
> gender in health research is essential to produce the best possible
> evidence to inform health care. Comprehensive integration of sex and gender
> requires considering these variables from the very beginning of the
> research process, starting at the proposal stage. To promote excellence in
> sex and gender integration, we have developed a set of metrics to assess
> the quality of sex and gender integration in research proposals. These
> metrics are designed to assist both researchers in developing proposals and
> reviewers in making funding decisions. We developed this tool through an
> iterative three-stage method involving 1) review of existing sex and gender
> integration resources and initial metrics design, 2) expert review and
> feedback via anonymous online survey (Likert scale and open-ended
> questions), and 3) analysis of feedback data and collective revision of the
> metrics. … http://journals.plos.org/plosone/article?id=10.1371/journal.

> Research: *This bias is present in studies completed in the United States
> and foreign institutions, and the proportion of studies using only male
> participants has actually increased over the 5-year period examined.
