Research Interests
I have been involved in a number of clinical trials that have examined the role of hormone therapy and alternative treatments in menopausal women's health. I have also been involved in epidemiologic research for almost 20 years in the Study of Women's Health Across the Nation, which has followed 3,000 women of 5 different ethnicities who have traversed the menopause. SWAN is examining a variety of outcomes and risk factors for health and disease in US women. I am also studying how obesity in women interferes with fertility and reproductive hormone production. I have recently completed work on another grant award, Establishment of Regular Ovulation in Normal Menarche, that is examining how girls develop regular menstrual cycles as they go through puberty and how this process may be adversely affected. I Chair the Steering Committee of the NIH's Reproductive Medicine Network, a clinical trials network that performs cutting-edge research in infertility and reproduction. I have also had a longstanding research interest in premature ovarian failure. In addition to these grants, I am the lead investigator on 3 mentored research NIH grant awards.

Information for Referring Providers
Clinical Interests for Referring Providers: Menopause, Perimenopause, Fertility, Infertility, Oncofertility, IVF, gamete cryopreservation, amenorrhea, premature menopause

Research Interest for Referring Providers: I have been a site PI for the Kronos Early Estrogen Prevention Study (KEEPS), which has tested the effect of estrogen, when given within 3 years of menopause, on carotid artery thickness and coronary calcium scores, as well as cognition. I am a co-Investigator on the Study of Women's Health Across the Nation, a 7-center study of 3,000 women of 5 different ethnicities who have traversed the menopause. SWAN is examining a variety of outcomes and risk factors for health and disease in this representative cohort of US women. I am a PI of Project 2 in the Albert Einstein College of Medicine's U54 Specialzed Center for Research in Reproduction award. This project is directed towards the study of how obesity in women interferes with fertility and reproductive hormone production. I am PI of a K24 award, Establishment of Regular Ovulation in Normal Menarche, that is examining how girls develop regular menstrual cycles as they go through puberty and how this process may be adversely affected. I am also Chair of the Steering Committee of the NIH's Reproductive Medicine Network, a clinical trials network that performs cutting-edge research in infertility and reproduction. I am PI or co-PI of three training grants: the Women's Reproductive Health Research Career Development Center at the University of Colorado, which trains OB/Gyn physician scientists for research careers; the Building Interdisciplinary Careers in Women's Health Center grant (Judy Regensteiner, PhD, PI), which trains both MDs and PhDs who study sex differences or women's health research, and the CREST Program grant, which facilitates mentored research among Ob/Gyn physicians who have pursued additional training in epidemiological research through this NIH-based program. I have also had a longstanding research interest in premature ovarian failure.
