Daheia Barr-Anderson
The University's Deborah E. Powell Center for Women's Health has announced that Daheia Barr-Anderson, Ph.D., assistant professor in kinesiology, has been chosen as a 2010 BIRCWH scholar.

BIRCWH, Building Interdisciplinary Research Careers in Women's Health, is a grant program from the NIH Office of Research on Women's Health designed to foster the career development of junior faculty members. The grant supports four junior faculty members in developing their research in women's health for up to three years or until they have received further federal funding. BIRCWH scholars must engage in basic, clinical, translational, behavioral, or health services research in an area relevant to women's health, with an emphasis on sex and gender factors.

"I am really excited to have been selected as a BIRCWH scholar," says Barr-Anderson. "My proposed BIRCWH research plan builds on the research agenda I have started developing as a Powell Center Scholar and from foundation grants I have received. This BIRCWH award will provide necessary mentoring, training, and research funds to support my research agenda and academic career and prepare me to develop and submit a competitive NIH R-series grant within the next 12-18 months."

Congratulations, Dr. Barr-Anderson!
