    MEDICAL RESEARCH GENDER BIAS - Trials for new drugs or pharmaceuticals are often conducted on male lab animals, with researchers saying their carefully calibrated experiments can be impacted by hormonal fluctuations in female specimens. Last week, the National Institutes of Health said that routine gender bias in lab testing may cloud our understanding of the effects of a new drug or treatment on women. The NIH will now require its researchers to test their work on both female and male animals during trials. Judy Woodruff sits down with Dr. Janine Clayton, the director of NIH's Office of Research on Women's Health, and Phyllis Greenberger, the President of the Society for Women's Health Research to gain some insight into what these changes mean.
