Our center includes basic, translational and clinical scientists who research women’s health across the lifespan: from in utero development through menopause.

We provide an optimal environment for individuals who are interested in integrating clinical and basic sciences and have a strong desire to pursue a career in academic research. The overall mission of the Vincent Center for Reproductive Biology (VCRB) is to conduct research that brings the power of cutting-edge laboratory methods to answering critical questions in women’s health. We value an equitable environment, diverse teams and inclusive research. We are working to overcome historical neglect of women’s health, and include all people with vaginas, uteri and ovaries.

Researchers at the Vincent Center for Reproductive Biology

A major step in realizing this goal was achieved in June of 1995 with the formal creation of the Vincent Center for Reproductive Biology - a state-of-the-art research facility developed to serve as the center of the scientific endeavors in the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology.

Since its inception, the VCRB has successfully nurtured the department's basic and translational research related to reproductive and women's health. We provide laboratory research opportunities for the department’s clinical fellowships:  maternal-fetal medicine, female pelvic medicine and reconstructive surgery, gynecologic oncology and reproductive endocrinology and infertility.  Our investigators have been funded by the National Institutes for Health (NIH), the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, Doris Duke Foundation, March of Dimes, Burroughs Wellcome Trust, Simons Foundation, Templeton Foundation and more.

VCRB investigators also partner with industry to further development of novel therapeutics.
