Active Research


Every faculty member in our Department is committed to an active research program aimed at improving women’s wealth. Our research efforts cover a wide variety of topics from basic science to clinical practice to improving health care access.

There are two easy ways to find out about the active research being conducted in our Department.

1) Search by health care provider.

Our Department has three divisions:

  • Gynecologic Oncology (cancer)

  • Maternal-Fetal Medicine (high risk pregnancy)

  • Obstetrics and Gynecology (general reproductive system health and pregnancy)

  • For Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility - please contact our Affiliate Partner, Colorado Center for Reproductive Medicine

To find out what research is being conducted in our divisions, please visit the page for the division in which you are interested. Each faculty member listed has a biography that includes a description of their research interests. The “” link at the bottom of their page will direct you to a listing of all the research publications authored by the faculty member.

2) Search by topic.

The University of Minnesota Experts @ Minnesota website allows you to search for faculty doing research on a particular topic. For example, if you want to find researchers at the University working on ovarian cancer, a search of the Experts @ Minnesota website will give you a list of all the faculty who have published a paper on ovarian cancer or have a grant to study ovarian cancer.
