Well-Being Incubator: Workshop - “What’s new about endometriosis? Visibility and research to improve women’s health”
Endometriosis is a highly prevalent chronic inflammatory disease that affects almost 200 million women around the world. However, it is still largely unknown in our society and has limited therapeutic options.
Eight researchers from across the EUniWell consortium will come together at this online workshop to discuss what is known about the disease, its origin, diagnostic methods, and efficacy of current therapeutic options. They will explore the reasons that make it a silent disease and the need for visibility. Participants will learn about experimental approaches that are being used in other areas of biomedicine that could be implemented to advance the knowledge of this pathology.
The event will take place online on 14 September at 15:30-18:00 CEST / 14:30-17:00 BST.
