Magee-Womens Research Institute is the largest independent research institute in the U.S. focused solely on women’s and infants’ health research. More than 100 nationally recognized physician-scientists are engaged in groundbreaking research spanning diverse aspects of women’s health.
Here are just a few of the ways that Magee is making a difference:
Pregnancy and Newborns – Scientists continue to make lifesaving discoveries about key diseases such as preeclampsia, fetal growth abnormalities, preterm birth, prenatal genetics and the lifelong impact stemming from those diseases. Nearly 11,000 babies are born at Magee each year and their cutting-edge Neonatal Intensive Care Unit is the largest in the country.
Fertility and Infertility – Scientists are delving deeply into the fundamental mechanisms that govern germ cell biology and pathways that lead to human infertility, to discover means for restoring fertility to diverse populations including young cancer patients.
Women’s Cancers – The institute’s advancements in detecting and treating breast, ovarian, cervical, and other cancers has transformed deadly diseases into ones that are survivable and manageable.
