NWO grant of €9.4M awarded for research on menopause

A grant of €9.4 million has been awarded by NWO to MenoPause: More healthy and productive years for Peri-menopausal women. The MenoPause consortium aims to ensure that all women around the menopause and beyond remain as healthy as possible, and can participate fully in social life.

Some women go through the menopause without complaints, while other women experience many physical and/or psychological complaints. These complaints often have major consequences for life at home or at work. Doctors, researchers, lifestyle experts, women going through menopause, and others all work together within the consortium. The researchers will map the complaints and adverse consequences of menopause in women of diverse backgrounds. The consortium further focuses on prevention of the aforementioned consequences.
