Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility Research

Uterine fibroids and polycystic ovary syndrome affect millions of women worldwide and are among the leading causes of infertility. Our researchers are investigating the underlying endocrinological basis of these often misunderstood conditions. In addition, we pursue research into other reproductive and ovarian disorders, menopause complications, and fertility preservation for cancer patients. We balance a rich science environment that combines interpretation of molecular mechanisms and identification of causal genes with a clear translational focus to enhance patient care.
