Department of Obstetrics, Gynecology and Reproductive Biology Integration
Research is an integral component of obstetrics and gynecology to continue to improve women's health. The Obstetrics, Gynecology and Reproductive Biology Medical Education Research Division is dedicated to improving the health of women across a range of obstetric and gynecological areas, including:
- The function and dysfunction of organs designed to facilitate and maintain pregnancy
- The impact of those organs on the general health of the woman
Basic Research Translates to Patient Care
Members of the Research Division strive to advance the understanding of women's health and reproduction and serve on multiple editorial boards, professional societies, and grant review committees. Research activities span the breadth of investigative obstetrics and gynecology – from direct clinical trials to basic laboratory research – that can be translated to patient care.
Clinical Trials Groups
The department's laboratory facilities for research and training include large core laboratory facilities on the eighth floor of University Hospitals MacDonald Women's Hospital. The laboratories are fully equipped for up-to-date research in molecular and cellular biology.
Access to More than 40 Core Facilities
As members of the faculty of Case Western Reserve University/University Hospitals Cleveland Medical Center, researchers in the department have access to more than 40 core facilities. These include core laboratories services for:
- Confocal microscopy
- Flow cytometry
- Gene expression array
- Molecular cytogenetics
- Real-time PCR
- Tissue procurement
