Dr. Oertelt-Prignione, Strategic Chair for Gender in Primary and Transmural Care at the Radboundumc (Netherlands), was invited by EU-life LIBRA and the LabEx DEEP to talk about integrating sex and gender into biomedical research. She discussed the impact of the examiner’s sex on the behavior of lab animals – “exposure of mice and rats to male but not female experimenters produces pain inhibition thus experimenter sex can affect baseline responses in behavioral testing”. Definitely food for thought!
