The Women’s Health Clinical Research Center (WHCRC) specializes in research about the health concerns of women throughout their lifetime. This includes topics such as infertility, menopausal symptoms, breast cancer, aging, osteoporosis, urinary incontinence, and cardiovascular disease. Our research is funded by the National Institutes of Health, charitable foundations, academic institutions and private industry.

We are a multi-disciplinary team consisting of physicians, nurses, statisticians, data programmers and other scientific personnel. The WHCRC staff designs and implements exploratory pilot studies to test innovative treatments. We also coordinate multi-center clinical trials, planning and directing protocol development and the collection, quality and analysis of the research data. We publish the results of our studies in leading medical journals.
