The Society for Women’s Health Research is a non-profit with the goal of promoting research on biological sex differences in disease and to improve women’s health, goals that it says have resulted in women’s inclusion in most major medical research studies.

Parikh said he was honored to receive the award in partnership with his team at AAAS. The AAAS has “an important role to play to create a more inclusive and equitable environment for women to thrive in the scientific enterprise and to drive scientific excellence,” Parikh said in a video statement in advance of the April 28 award ceremony.
