Collaborative Open House a success for CRepHS/CWHE

The Center for Reproductive Health Sciences (CRepHS) and the Center for Women’s Health Engineering (CWHE) hosted an open house event on December 5, 2023. At this collaborative event held on the Medical Campus, more than 70 attendees from the McKelvey School of Engineering and the School of Medicine were able to network and learn about reproductive health research, education and training.

CRepHS Director, Sarah England, PhD, provided the event welcome in Connor Auditorium, followed by CRepHS/CWHE collaborators Mary (Maggie) Mullen, MD, Assistant Professor of Ob/Gyn, and Alexandra Rutz, PhD, Assistant Professor of Biomedical Engineering, with their feature presentation, “In Vitro Bioelectronic Monitoring of Therapy Response in 3D, Patient-Derived Ovarian Cancer Models.” Then, attendees and participants of all career stages headed to the FLTC Atrium for a poster session and refreshments.

“Our centers are excited about the collaborations happening right now between the fields of reproductive health basic research and engineering,” states Dr. England. “We look forward to introducing our research teams to even more future collaborators across the university, with the goal of helping inspire new scientific discoveries.”
