Gender diversity is still a problem in clinical research. According to an analysis of trials conducted between 2016 and 2019, women make up 50.8% of the U.S. population but only 41.2% of clinical research participants.1 The same analysis reported more dire numbers for specific therapeutic areas. For example, 51% of cancer patients are women, but only 41% of oncology research participants are female, and 60% of people with psychiatric disorders are women, but only 42% of participants in psychiatric drug trials were female.1

How can you enroll more women in your study to ensure your product safely serves all genders? Bring your study to them.
