One of our core values, as part of the academic mission of the department, is to establish an atmosphere of respect and excitement for research. Our commitment to multidisciplinary team-based women’s healthcare is a key component of our efforts to create and expand knowledge and improve the quality of our patients’ lives through excellent basic, translational, and clinical research.

The Department’s mission to foster clinical investigation and translational research amongst the faculty is supported by an established and rapidly growing Division of Research. The Division is headed by Vice-Chair for Research and Faculty Development, Michael Pearl, MD, FACOG, FACS and Research Coordinator, Elizabeth Roemer. In addition, the Division has full-time staff members and ancillary part-time support.
