The Society for Reproductive Endocrinology was awarded a competitive training grant from the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development to provide reproductive endocrinology and infertility fellows with specialized training in reproductive medicine and biology. Ten Board-approved REI fellowship programs currently participate in the program, which is administered through the University of Pennsylvania. Each year, REI fellows are awarded 1- or 2-year NIH traineeships to conduct cutting edge research in the laboratories of NIH-funded investigators. In the final year of training, fellows present their research in the ASRM Annual Meeting Scientific Program.
Congratulations to the 2012 trainee: Kasey Reynolds, M.D., Washington University in St. Louis. The title of her project is “The Effect of Obese Maternal Environment on Reproductive Outcomes Begins at the Oocyte Stage” and her mentor is Kelle Moley, M.D.
