Novel pathways controlling human reproduction and their therapeutic applications

Mechanisms of Disease and Translational Research Seminar

Speaker:  Professor Richard Anderson, MD PhD FRCOG FRCP(Ed), Elsie Ingls Professor of Clinical Reproductive Science, University of Edinburgh, Consultant in Reproductive Medicine, Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh, Head of Section, Obstetrics and Gynaecology, University of Edinburgh

Professor Richard Anderson trained in Obstetrics and Gynaecology in Edinburgh, with a WHO Research Fellow post then subspecialty training in Reproductive Medicine. After a year at UC San Diego, he returned to the MRC Human Reproductive Sciences Unit in 1998 with a Consultant post in Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility at the Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh.  Prof. Anderson was subsequently appointed to Chair of Clinical Reproductive Science at the University of Edinburgh in 2005 and over subsequent years established a group investigating female reproductive lifespan, with laboratory and clinical aspects particularly related to the adverse effects of cancer treatment on fertility.  He has also conducted clinical studies developing our understanding of the novel neuropeptides kisspeptin and neurokinin B in human reproductive function in men and women.
