NIH awards $7 million for PCOS research at University of Virginia

More positive news on the funding of PCOS research has been announced – timed perfectly for “PCOS Awareness Month.”

The US government’s National Institutes of Health (NIH) has granted $7 million to the University of Virginia Medical School in Charlottesville to study PCOS.

“We already know that signals coming from the brain and the pituitary gland to the ovaries are abnormal in girls with too much testosterone,” says Marshall. “Now we have to prove that the high levels of testosterone are present before puberty and if these high levels affect the way girls go through puberty. Then we hope to learn how to prevent it from occurring,” said Dr. John C. Marshall, professor of internal medicine, who heads up the Center for Research in Reproduction.

 Finally! Let’s hope this grant spurs further funding!
