Grant Project Title: Identification of transcriptomic and epigenetic coordinates for post-implantation human embryonic development
Dr. Werner Neuhausser is an Instructor of Obstetrics, Gynecology and Reproductive Biology at Harvard Medical School and the Division of Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston. His research focuses on the development of in vitro models to study the mechanism of human and mouse germ cell development, in particular the gene regulation and epigenetic reprogramming of the germ line. The long-term goal of this NIH-funded research program is to define how epigenetic dysregulation in the developing germ line contributes to human reproductive disorders, developmental defects and adult disease.
The Howard and Georgeanna Jones Foundation for Reproductive Medicine is a not-for-profit organization that solicits funds from the general public to support scientific and medical research in the field of reproductive medicine. In addition to providing research grants to deserving scientific investigators, the Foundation Board of Directors is prepared to serve in an advisory capacity to the agencies it supports. We may also sponsor seminars which would be designed to evaluate public policy issues related to reproductive medicine and are proud to be the nation’s preeminent medical research foundation focused solely on reproductive medicine. Like ASRM, we are uniquely positioned to support novel ideas and innovative concepts aimed at optimizing the diagnosis and treatment of reproductive disorders and infertility. Both organizations focus on supporting areas that will have the greatest impact on the practice of reproductive medicine, particularly when other funding sources are inadequate.
It’s time for us to come together as a community, celebrate our accomplishments, spread the word of our good work, and make a difference in the reproductive health and medicine community.
Please SAVE THE DATE and join ASRM for Giving Day 2022 as we unite to help eliminate disparities in access to reproductive care for all.
