Carolyn M. Mazure is the Norma Weinberg Spungen and Joan Lebson Bildner Professor in Women’s Health Research, and Professor of Psychiatry and Psychology. After three years at the National Institutes of Health and fellowship training at Yale, Dr. Mazure joined the Yale faculty — becoming an active clinician and NIH-funded researcher. She was the Director of Psychiatry’s Adult Inpatient Program at Yale-New Haven Hospital, and has held a variety of other leadership roles, including Associate Dean for Faculty at Yale School of Medicine, Scientific Director of NIH-funded SCOR(E) interdisciplinary research grants, and PI of NIH-funded junior faculty training grants.

She created Women’s Health Research at Yale, the university’s interdisciplinary research center on the health of women and the interplay of sex, gender, and health. The center studies a wide breadth of topics from cardiovascular disease to cancers. Since its inception in 1998, the center has been recognized as a national model for launching research, translating findings, sharing health information with the public and policymakers, and providing mentored training in interdisciplinary team science.

In 2023, Dr. Mazure was appointed Chair of the White House Initiative on Women’s Health Research, which aims to fundamentally change how the nation approaches and funds women’s health research.
