Menopause and Later Life Research

As women experience mid-life, changes in their bodies and in their health can mean significant challenges to their lifestyle and for their families.  While many of these changes are natural and normal, some of them signal issues that require the care of a physician.  Researchers and clinicians in Ob/Gyn at the University of Rochester are investigating these changes and finding solutions to ensure that women can meet these changes and the challenges that come with them with the very best care.

Gynecologic Oncology

This year, more than 80,000 women will discover that they have some form of gynecologic cancer. It might affect their ovaries, uterus, cervix, vulva, vagina or fallopian tubes. At the University of Rochester, we're committed to finding new ways to detect and treat gynecologic cancers.  Our faculty's research interests include ovarian cancer, with a special emphasis on the cancer stem cells, and cervical cancer, with an emphasis on early detection.
