This is Scientific American’s 60-Second Science. I’m Cynthia Graber, this will just take a minute.

For generations, nearly all medical research was done on men. And the assumption1 was that what’s true for men is true for women. Now of course we know that’s not the case. And most researchers today make it clear that they’re trying to recruit2 a relatively3 equal number of men and women. But according to the Society for Women’s Health Research, women may not be aware of their importance in medical studies. The society surveyed 2,000 adults over 18. Ninety-four percent of women say their doctor has never talked to them about participating in any sort of trial. More than a quarter didn’t know that healthy individuals were needed for studies. Women were also more likely than men to say they’re too old or not healthy enough. Sherry Marts is the vice4 president of scientific affairs for the society. She says these numbers reflect the difficulty of getting older women in particular involved in research. But women over 65 are one of the fastest growing segments5 of the population. Marts says our ability to improve care, develop new treatments and find cures depends on research ­ and educating aging women about their role in medical breakthroughs.

Thanks for the minute for Scientific American’s 60-Second Science. I’m Cynthia Graber.
