Sponsoring Investigators

Review the list of WHI Sponsoring Investigators by mentorship areas to identify an investigator with appropriate expertise in your area of interest. Some investigators are currently involved with multiple ancillary studies and/or manuscripts and may be unable to devote time to an additional project. Once you have identified a possible collaborator, consult their institutional profile () for additional information. If that information is missing or not current, try contacting their institution or the WHI Help Desk. Learn more about the categories of WHI investigators.
