The Johns Hopkins Medical Institutions provide an opportunity for fellows to experience structured basic laboratory, and/or clinical research to enhance the fellow's basic understanding of the latest scientific techniques. This training provides comprehensive research opportunities as well as extensive interaction with other scientists, leading to outstanding academic contributions to our subspecialty. In addition, fellows have the opportunity to obtain research awards, and/or funding from national organizations, allowing them to become independent investigators.
Reproductive Endocrinology is, by nature, an interdisciplinary endeavor and progress in our research requires using a variety of experimental and conceptual approaches. It is not surprising that our faculty and fellows are involved in research collaborations that transcend department boundaries. Indeed, Reproductive Endocrinology has been a leader in establishing a number of interdepartmental research projects such as:
- Prolactin Gene Expression in Human Granulosa Cells
- Preimplantation Genetic Diagnosis
