NICHD Funds New Infertility Research Center

The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign is poised to become a major leader in infertility research. That is because they have just received approval from the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD) for funding to support a new infertility research center. Like other centers of its kind, The Center for Reproduction and Infertility Research will be focused on finding new ways to improve human reproductive health. Through research taking place at the new location, scientists and medical professionals hope to gain new insight into fertility issues and to provide new solutions to those who need them. One of the main things that is going to initially happen at this new center is that a multidisciplinary team of researchers will be joining forces. They will be working towrads a goal of understanding maternal-fetal communication in the early stages of pregnancy and identifying causes of infertility related to endometriosis. With experts from different areas of the school's educational team coming together, the center should be able to provide a wealth of information to these women.
