About the SCORE

Because Sex Matters in Science!

The two major goals of the Emory Specialized Center of Research Excellence in Sex Differences are to promote the normalization of sex as a biological variable in all research involving humans and other vertebrate animals and to establish Emory University as a leader in studying the influence of biological sex on disease. The SCORE addresses these goals through the provision of research funding, support, and education.

lthough the Emory SCORE supports all science, given the global burden and the health disparity in the outcomes of infectious diseases, our immediate scientific goal is to begin bringing Emory into prominence as a center for exploring in great depth the influence of sex on microbial-host-pathogen interactions.
