Thank you for your interest in our research! We are actively recruiting for four studies:

Nutritional & Metabolic Correlates of Ovarian Morphology in Women with Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS)

  • Purpose: This study investigates how aspects of metabolism, lifestyle, and age influence ovarian function, as well as how hormones differ in women with distinct patterns of follicle populations.
  • We are looking for: Women, ages 18 - 45 years, with a previous diagnosis of PCOS, who are not currently taking hormones (i.e., birth control pills, fertility medications, etc.)
  • Time Commitment: 3.5 - 4 hours spread over 3 study visits, 7 days off site (to wear a device that measures physical activity).
  • Study Location: University of Rochester & Strong Fertility (Rochester, NY)
  • Honorarium: $100
  • ClinicalTrials.gov ID: NCT01927471

Ultrasonographic Evaluation of Anovulatory Disorders in Lean and Overweight Women

  • Purpose: The study investigates whether ultrasound features of the ovaries can be used to reliably diagnose different types of anovulatory disorders in women across all body types. The study will also try to establish whether ultrasound features of the ovary can reflect the degree of reproductive and metabolic problems that a woman with irregular or absent periods might be experiencing.
  • We are looking for: Women, ages 18-45 years with regular menstrual cycles, irregular menstrual cycles, or a previous diagnosis of PCOS
  • Time Commitment: 3.5 - 4 hours spread over 4 on-site study visits, 7 days off-site (to wear a device that measures physical activity).
  • Study Locations: Weill Cornell, NYC
  • Honorarium and Benefit: $125
  • ClinicalTrials.gov ID: NCT03306849

Ovarian Ultrasonography for the Clinical Evaluation of Polycystic Ovary Syndrome

  • Purpose: This study investigates ultrasound technology and aspects of age and adiposity influence ovarian morphology.
  • We are looking for: Women, ages 18 - 45 years, with a previous diagnosis of polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), who are not currently taking hormones (i.e., birth control pills, fertility medications, etc.)
  • Time Commitment: 45-60 minutes
  • Study Locations: University of Rochester & Strong Fertility (Rochester, NY)
  • Honorarium and Benefit: $25

A Comparison of Follicle Counts Across Age and Body Habitus Using Two- and Three-Dimensional Ultrasonography

  • Purpose: This study investigates ultrasound technology and aspects of age and adiposity influence ovarian morphology.
  • We are looking for: Women, ages 18 - 45 years, with either regular menstrual cycles or a previous diagnosis of polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), who are not currently taking hormones (i.e., birth control pills, fertility medications, etc.)
  • Time Commitment: 45-60 minutes
  • Study Locations: Cornell University (Ithaca, NY)
  • Honorarium and Benefit: $25
