The Reproductive Scientist Development Program (RSDP)
This is a national postdoctoral career development program designed for young obstetrician-gynecologists who are committed to careers in academic medicine. The program provides two to three years support of full-time basic research under the mentorship of internationally recognized senior scientists.
In addition, each year the Foundation sponsors the C.D. Christian Lectureship at the annual meeting of the Society for Gynecologic Investigation. This award has made it possible for internationally distinguished scientists to share their insights and experiences with colleagues in the area of reproductive medicine.
