Gender in Medicine (GiM) was founded as an interdisciplinary research center in 2003 by cardiologist Vera Regitz-Zagrosek. Since 2007, GiM has been an independent institution at Charité - Universitätsmedizin Berlin and is associated with the "Centrum für Human- und Gesundheitswissenschaften CC1" (medical humanities) at the Charité – Universitätsmedizin Berlin.
A focus of our work is gender and diversity-sensitive prevention. We develop interventions that make relevant contributions to improving the health, quality of life, and well-being of the general population. Using observational and intervention studies, supplemented by qualitative studies, we systematically examine gender differences in health and disease. Our research results support the development and implementation of gender-sensitive strategies in the health care system, as well as being disseminated in medical teaching and practice.
Our team includes scientists from the fields of psychology, nursing sciences and medicine. Our research is supported by the German Research Foundation DFG, the Innovationsfonds, Berlin University Alliance, US National Institutes of Health, and the German Heart Foundation (Deutsche Herzstiftung).
