Division of Reproductive Science and Women's Health Research

The Johns Hopkins Division of Reproductive Science and Women’s Health Research is a comprehensive research center devoted to advancing the health of women at every stage of their lives. Led by Dr. James Segars, we are a team of lab scientists, biomedical researchers and patient care providers united in a desire to better understand reproductive processes. This includes investigating the impact social and environmental changes have on gamete exchange, fertility, nidation, maintenance of pregnancy, birth, cellular growth and senescence.

We know medical breakthroughs occur at the intersection of different scientific disciplines. Our collaborative approach to reproductive science draws strength from the expertise across Johns Hopkins. This has given birth to groundbreaking discoveries that assist the larger scientific community in improving the health of women, men and their offspring.
