Women’s Reproductive Health Research (K12) at Stanford Program
Applications are not currently being accepted.
The Women’s Reproductive Health Research (WRHR) at Stanford Program, funded by the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (1K12HD103084), provides state-of-the-art, mentored, multidisciplinary research career development for outstanding junior clinician-scientists who will impact and improve women’s reproductive health. Diversity of thought, experience and approach are fundamental principles of our program.
The WRHR at Stanford Program bridges clinical care with excellence in basic, clinical and translational research to address the national shortage of qualified investigators in this discipline. The Program includes a structured training plan of sufficient duration to achieve independence; individualized didactic education based on skills, competencies, and needs; extensive team-based mentoring; hands-on research; and protected time with immersion in a vibrant research community. Each Scholar will have a multidisciplinary mentor team as well as access to a wealth of resources and the rigorous reproductive research infrastructure of the OB/GYN Department and beyond.
The beauty of the WRHR program is the ability for up-and-coming clinician-scientists to build a network for impactful research and have the protected time to conduct research as investigators leading their own projects.

Diversity of thought, experience, and approach are fundamental principles of our program. Thirty-seven faculty mentors and 7 advisory committee members (5 internal, 2 external) representing 3 schools, 11 departments, and 5 institutes at Stanford collaborate to mentor our WRHR scholars to acquire the skills and experience needed to transition into productive, independent physician-scientists able to sustain viable careers and mentor future generations.
