Michelle Robinson, DMD, senior associate dean at University of Alabama at Birmingham School of Dentistry and interim dean at UAB School of Education, has been appointed to the National Institute of Health’s Advisory Committee for Research on Women’s Health.

“It is an honor to serve on a committee that is devoted to strengthening and enhancing research related to conditions that affect women,” Robinson said. “I am proud to be a part of a group that represents a diversity of experience related to women’s health research and that works together to address public health issues that women around the world face.” 

As a member of the advisory committee, Robinson will work on improving health for women and their families and advise on gender-based health disparities.

Established in 1990, the Office of Research on Women’s Health is the first public health service office dedicated specifically to promoting women’s health research within and beyond the NIH scientific community. ORWH crafts and implements the NIH Strategic Plan for Women’s Health Research in partnership with NIH Institutes and Centers, co-funds research on the role of sex and gender on health, and ensures that women and minorities are represented in NIH-supported clinical research.

The office provides interdisciplinary research and career development initiatives that stimulate research on sex and gender differences and provide career support to launch promising women’s health researchers. 

“This opportunity is a testament of NIH’s commitment to advancement of a diverse biomedical workforce,” Robinson said.
