doctors in research lab

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. Our division boasts multiple NIH-funded faculty members with over 20 active clinical trials. Through partnership with the Division of Reproductive Science and Women’s Health Research, led by Dr. James Segars, our fellows have unparalleled access to both clinical, translational and basic science research training. In addition, fellows have the opportunity to obtain research awards, and funding from both internal and external sources, 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:

  • Fibroids
  • Preimplantation Genetic Diagnosis
  • Endometriosis
  • Granulosa cell signaling
  • Fertility Preservation Research
