Margaret M McCarthy, PhD, is the current President of the Organization for the Study of Sex Differences, and Professor and Chair of Pharmacology at the University of Maryland School of Medicine in Baltimore MD.
"The Organization for the Study of Sex Differences is a scientific organization dedicated to the promotion of knowledge and research on sex and gender differences in biology and medicine. Sex is a biological variable that profoundly influences the physiology of every organ in the body. The frequency, progression and severity of the overwhelming majority of diseases and disorders are influenced by sex. Thus excellence in biomedical science demands that we understand the influence of sex in its entirety. We are excited by the early success of Biology of Sex Differences, which is dedicated to such excellence."
