A Global Leader in Women's Medical Research and Health Research

Magee-Womens Research Institute (MWRI) is a home for University of Pittsburgh medical research scientists who are engaged in health research that spans reproductive biology and development and diverse aspects of women’s health. Key physiological processes and diseases that span a woman’s entire life cycle are pursued – from the formation of germ cells and embryos through childhood and adolescence to reproductive life, pregnancy, menopause, and aging. MWRI researchers devoted to women’s health research and medical research use a variety of basic, translational, and clinical investigative tools that support our central mission to: advance knowledge in the field of reproductive biology and medicine, translate discoveries into improved health for women and their infants, and train the next generation of reproductive health research scholars.
