Vita Prof. Dr. Ineke Klinge

Ineke Klinge is Associate Professor of Gender Medicine at Maastricht University.


She combined her training in biomedical sciences (specialization immunology) with gender research. Her research focuses on integration of gender and diversity issues into biomedical and health research. Successive grants were obtained from the Dutch Organization for Health Care and Development (ZonMw) and from the European Commission.

Since 2000 she has concentrated on EU grants for establishing sex and gender sensitive research throughout Europe. She led the Gender Impact Assessment Study of the research programme for the Life Sciences in 2000-2001. From 2005-2008 she coordinated the GenderBasic project that was selected as a 'success story' of FP6. In winter semester 2008-2009 she was appointed as Maria-Goeppert-Mayer guest professor for Sex and Gender in Biomedicine at the University of Göttingen in Germany and taught courses in Gender Medicine for students in medicine and molecular medicine.

She published widely on osteoporosis, the female body, medicalization, menopause, and more recently on sex and gender in biomedicine, and on gender sensitive research methodologies in life sciences and health Research.

Her latest book Sex and Gender in Biomedicine, Theories, Methodologies, Results that she edited with Claudia Wiesemann was published by University Press Göttingen in 2010.
