for Center for Reproductive Science Events
The Northwestern Center for Reproductive Science leads the way. Reproductive science and medicine through the CRS extends from basic research on cellular and molecular mechanisms to physiological integration across organ systems to clinical practices that impact fertility and health. Our scientific and medical discoveries are intertwined with significant moral, ethical and political questions.
Since its formal inception in 1987, the CRS has been at the forefront of reproductive science and medicine research. Professor Neena Schwartz was the first to characterize inhibin in follicular fluid and Professor Erwin Goldberg was the first to identify the male germ cell-specific enzyme LDH-C4. Building on this foundation with strong institutional support, the CRS today includes nearly 200 faculty members and 100 trainees that together have discovered placental hormones, revealed signaling pathways in reproductive tract disease, solved the structures of key reproductive hormones, characterized major hormone biosynthetic pathways, and developed new fertility preservation strategies. This rich environment has fueled the reproductive science and medicine pipeline, nurturing generations of reproductive scientists who today assume leadership positions in academics, medicine, industry, journalism, policy, and beyond.
The CRS offers a wide array of resources, programming, and funding opportunities in reproductive science and medicine.
