Personal Statement: The proposed research is an epidemiologic study of assisted reproduction. I have been a clinician and clinical investigator in the area of assisted reproduction for more than 20 years. During that time, I have served in a number of important leadership positions within our In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) program and nationally including serving as President of the Society of Assisted Reproductive technologies. My epidemiologic research in the area of IVF has included two senior author studies published in the New England Journal of Medicine; one on insurance and IVF outcomes and the second on trends in embryo transfer in the United States. I have participated as a Co-Principal Investigator for a prior National Institute of Health supported study on “Predictors of IVF Success.” The proposed study builds upon my previous successful work on the epidemiology of IVF. In addition, I have served as a Co-Principal Investigator on both grants related to the MOSART collaboration: Women’s Health after Assisted Reproductive Technology: A population-based study, and Child Health after Assisted Reproductive Technology: A population-based study. In summary, my clinical experience, local and national leadership in IVF and my prior research track record give support to my role in the proposed project.
