Dr. Ei Terasawa Receives NIH/NICHD Grant

Ei Terasawa, PhD, was recently awarded a 5-year, $2 million research grant from the National Institutes of Health, Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health & Human Development (NIH/NICHD) for her project, “Role of neuroestradiol in regulation of the GnRH surge”. The overall objective of this proposal is to investigate the regulation of gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) neurons in the non-human primate. Information obtained from this study will provide a basis for the development of new tools for clinical management of infertility and would lead to a new target for the development of new contraceptive drugs.
