The Howard W. and Georgeanna Seegar Jones Laboratory of Reproductive Sciences and Women's Health Research woman works to examine sample under microscope
The Division of Reproductive Sciences at Johns Hopkins pursues basic, translational, and clinical investigation of reproductive disorders to advance health care of women, provides training and mentorship for the next generation of reproductive scientists, and supports research initiatives in the department of Gynecology and Obstetrics and across the University.

Research Objectives

Our primary goal is to advance the treatment of common gynecologic conditions through our laboratory research discoveries. We focus on improving treatments for, and identifying genetic causes of uterine fibroids, endometriosis and PCOS.

The broad range of our research necessitates a multidisciplinary team of experts in their respective fields. We are proud to collaborate with our colleagues throughout Johns Hopkins to evaluate innovative approaches for early detection through the development of more effective screening tools and investigate new treatment options for gynecological conditions that affect reproductive potential. Clinical trials support this research.
