Women's Health Research Initiative

There is significant gender inequity in research, with women's health receiving less attention across the health research spectrum-- particularly when it comes to funding. We believe that this is a problem for all of us to try to solve, so we’re taking action with our commitment to support 100 total projects over the next 10 years. This opportunity is open to student researchers of any background conducting research focusing on women’s health.

Frequently Asked Questions

We're here to help answer any questions you have about our grant initiatives. You can visit our Help Center for more resources, or email us at hello@labfront.com.

What does Labfront do with the data collected from students' submissions?
down arrow

The research findings and publications all belong strictly to the grantee.  All of the data collected (self-reported and physiological) belongs to the grantee. We do not access or own this anonymized data at any point before, during, or after the study. You can view the full terms and conditions here

What is included with the Advanced plan?
down arrow

The Advanced plan gives you access to our full range of metrics with no caps on data quantity.  Remotely collect wearable, survey and event tracking data from up to 50 participants. All participant data is neatly organized and exported into CSV files. *Analytics reports are not included*

What type of Garmin smartwatch is being offered?
down arrow

For the fall and winter grants, awardees will receive 5 Garmin Vivosmart 4 devices.

Will the students be able to put Labfront in their IRBs?
down arrow

Yes! We’ve passed all our IRBs in the two years we’ve been active. We have support documentation here and we can offer additional support if necessary.

Can an advisor submit an application on a student's behalf?
down arrow

The grants are designed to be run by a student with the help of an advisor/professor. They should submit the grant themselves but one of our criteria is a strong letter of recommendation.

Do applicants need to be enrolled in a U.S. institution?
down arrow

No, students can be from anywhere in the world.
