To help advance research in women’s reproductive health, twelve centers have been awarded a total of $4 million to support early research careers in the field of obstetrics and gynecology. The centers will provide universities and hospitals with the opportunity to build national programs for developing new investigators in women’s health research.

The centers, funded by the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD) and the Office of Research on Women’s Health at the National Institutes of Health, will help to build the next generation of investigators in obstetrics and gynecology by giving clinicians the experience needed to become researchers.

"The new women’s reproductive health centers will be a powerful tool to advance the field of women’s health by training more new researchers to conduct cutting-edge science," said Dr. Duane Alexander, Director of NICHD.

Once the centers are established, research candidates will apply directly to the sites for the opportunity to participate in the programs. Investigators with established research programs will serve as mentors and advisors at each new center.

The new Women’s Reproductive Health Research Career Development Centers are:

  • Magee-Women’s Hospital, Pittsburgh, PA – Women’s Reproductive Health Research Career Development Center
  • Oregon Health Sciences University – Oregon Women’s Reproductive Health Research Career Development Center
  • Stanford University – Mentoring and Advanced Training for Women’s Reproductive Health Research Scholars
  • University of California, San Francisco – Women’s Reproductive Health Research Center
  • University of California, Los Angeles – UCLA Women’s Reproductive Health Research Center
  • University of Cincinnati – Women’s Reproductive Health Research Scholars Program
  • University of Pennsylvania – Center for Career Development in Women’s Health
  • University of Texas Health Sciences Center at Houston – Women’s Reproductive Health Research Career Development Center
  • University of Texas Medical Branch, Galveston – UTMB Women’s Reproductive Health Research Career Development Center of Excellence
  • University of Washington – Research Training for Physicians in Women’s Health
  • Wake Forest University School of Medicine – Women’s Reproductive Health Research Career Development Center
  • Wayne State University, Detroit, Michigan – Detroit Reproductive Career Development Research Center
