Women’s Health Collaborative Research Group

Welcome from Steven Lindheim, M.D.

The Women's Health Collaborative Research Group was established in 2014 to promote women's health by supporting basic science and clinical research and encouraging a multidisciplinary approach to improve understanding of the diseases unique to women. These include various aspects of obstetrics, gynecology and reproduction. Research is ongoing and new projects are starting every day. Our goal is to be a resource for both the academic and local communities and to support research that provides women with the highest level of health care and quality of life.

Thank you for your interest in our research. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact us.


The Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology is proud to announce the initiation of the OB/GYN Research and Training Fund headed by Jerome Yaklic, M.D., David Cool, Ph.D., and Steven Lindheim, M.D. We are also pleased to announce that second-year Boonshoft School of Medicine student Katie Coyne, M.S., was awarded the inaugural grant in September 2014 for her work in the area of third party reproduction-obesity and reproductive outcomes.
