Reproductive Sciences

Training in Reproductive Sciences

The study of Reproductive Biology is entering an exciting era with the ability utilize molecular knowledge and tools developed over the past two decades to bear on the complex problems of reproductive development and function.  These fundamental advancements in turn are providing the foundation for research into the pathogenesis and treatment of reproductive system disorders such as infertility, dysmenorrhea, uterine fibroids, adverse pregnancy outcomes, as well as cancers of reproductive organs and gender based diseases of the immune and other systems.  The Program in Reproductive Sciences is designed to train scientists to deal in a comprehensive manner with the fundamental basis of these problems. It leads to the Ph.D. degree in Physiology and Biophysics with Reproductive Sciences emphasis.

Graduate training in Reproductive Sciences is an interdepartmental program, with basic science and clinical faculty drawn from 10 different Departments and Divisions.   Training in Reproductive Sciences emphasizes integrated, translational, and multidisciplinary approaches to the study of the biology and pathophysiology of reproductive systems. 

Research areas include:

  Signal transduction and transcriptional regulation

  Reproductive endocrinology and fertility


  Breast, ovarian and uterine cancers



  Complications of pregnancy

  Development and function of the reproductive system

  Mammary gland development and lactation

  Placental development and function

  Fetal developmental programming
