SCORE Affiliations

National Institutes of Health (NIH) Specialized Centers of Research Excellence on Sex Differences
The Specialized Centers of Research Excellence (SCORE) on Sex Differences program is a signature program of the Office of Research on Women’s Health (ORWH).

UCLA SCORE – Sex Differences in Metabolism
The objective of our SCORE on “Sex Differences in the Metabolic Syndrome” is to elucidate sex differences in risk factors and treatments for Metabolic Syndrome (MetSyn) components such as obesity, insulin resistance/diabetes, dyslipidemia, and fatty liver.

Cedars Sinai SCORE on Sex Differences
Our goal is to form a robust and sustainable structure of academic activities centered on systematically interrogating sex differences in the relationship among eicosanoids, microvascular dysfunction, and age-related end-organ disease, with an initial focus on the microvascular aging effects on brain, heart, and kidney function.

Mayo Clinic SCORE on Sex Differences
The Mayo Clinic Specialized Center of Research Excellence (SCORE) on Sex Differences promotes interdisciplinary approaches to advance translational research on sex differences in health and disease. Research spans from basic science projects to clinical studies.

Ellingson Lab
Ellingson lab is within the UCLA Brain Tumor Imaging Laboratory (BTIL), which is part of the Center for Computer Vision and Imaging Biomarkers, and a member of the UCLA Brain Tumor Program. Our research involves the development, testing, and implementation of advanced MRI and PET imaging biomarkers for the characterization of brain tumor biology and response evaluation in clinical trials.

USC Applied Mathematical Physiology Laboratory
The Applied Mathematical Physiology Laboratory (AMPL) is directed by Jason J. Kutch. Work in AMPL is at the intersection of chronic pain and movement control. The lab is in the Division of Biokinesiology and Physical Therapy at the University of Southern California.

UCLA Microbiome Center
The UCLA Microbiome Center brings together UCLA investigators from different departments and schools interested in the human microbiome, representing a wide spectrum of expertise, spanning from oral biology, mucosal inflammation, metabolism, skin, to brain gut interactions.

Multi-Disciplinary Approach to the Study of Chronic Pelvic Pain (MAPP)
To help better understand the underlying causes of the two most prominent chronic urological pain disorders–interstitial cystitis/ bladder pain syndrome (IC/BPS) and chronic prostatitis/chronic pelvic pain syndrome (CP/CPPS), in 2008 the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK) of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) established the Multidisciplinary Approach to the Study of Chronic Pelvic Pain (MAPP) Research Network.
