SLAS2019 Keynote Speaker Teresa Woodruff: Life Sciences Research Gives Birth to Oncofertility

She explores the mystery of fertility, designing first a bioprosthetic ovary that restores ovarian function in sterilized mice, then creating a 28-day ovarian cycle-on-a-chip. Wielding her influence over United States health policy, this mover and shaker evaluates how research is conducted and what it can yield to fulfill urgent, unmet needs. Next, she addresses the SLAS community as keynote speaker at SLAS2019, Feb. 2-6, 2019, in Washington, DC.
