Postdoctoral Training in Reproductive Sciences

Postdoctoral Training in Reproductive Sciences

This training program for Ph.D. postdoctoral fellows aims to provide outstanding training for future academic faculty or biotechnology leaders with a concentration on research in reproductive biology.

It is coupled with training for M.D. clinical fellows in obstetrics and gynecology that qualifies them for subspecialty boards to produce highly qualified physician scientists with a commitment to clinical and basic research. This integrated basic, translational, and clinical research training program is designed to provide PhD, MD, MD/PhD trainees for successful careers with well-rounded training and a foundation for leadership in reproductive sciences.

Research opportunites range from computational and molecular to patient-oriented research utilizing bioinformatics, in vitro analyses, cell culture models, whole animal, and clinical research methodology. The breadth of the research opportunites for our trainees covers the lifspan: germ cells, placental growth and function, gonadal physiology and development, pituitary/hypothalamic development and neurophysiology, puberty, pelvic floor muscle biology, vaginal, urinary, and gut microbiome, metabolism and stress, and epidemiology of infertility and preterm birth.

Faculty mentors are carefully selected for their research focus and commitment to reproductive sciences, their substantial funding record, their experience in training postdoctoral and clinical fellows, and their willingness to participate in mentoring and training activities of the program.
