Men's Reproductive Health Research at the University of Washington
Male Reproductive Health Research (MRHR)
In 2006 the UW was one of two sites chosen nationwide and funded for a five-year period by the National Institutes of Health to be a Men's Reproductive Health Research (MRHR) Career Development Training Center.
The long-term goal of the UW MRHR program is to recruit and facilitate the career development of urologists, endocrinologists, and physicians who have demonstrated research potential and are committed to a career in academic medicine. The University of Washington program is unique in its broad approach to the MRHR career development award. We have assembled an internationally renowned mentor group from an exceptionally wide range of disciplines. Scholars build collaborative teams, with male reproductive research as the core activity. The end result is an individually tailored educational program, which will allow the successful applicant to make the transition from trainee to primary investigator.
The principal training format is a mentored experience with a successful investigator (clinical or basic research) for a minimum of two and up to five years. During this period, the scholars devote 75-80% of their time to research. The research scope is open for the scholar and mentor to direct and encompasses all areas of reproductive urology and andrology. The UW can support a maximum of two scholars at any given time.
