PCOS header

The VCU Program for Polycystic Ovary Syndrome Research & Treatment is an academic and clinical facility dedicated to the treatment and understanding of the polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), with a special emphasis on the role of insulin resistance in the syndrome. The program's recent accomplishments include a delineation of the role of insulin sensitizing drugs in the treatment of infertility and excess testosterone production.




Current research focuses on these issues, as well as the role of the insulin resistance in placing women with polycystic ovary syndrome at higher risks for development of diabetes and heart disease. We invite you to browse this site for information on current research studies for which we are recruiting volunteers, the program's faculty, and general information on polycystic ovary syndrome.
