ASRM Announces Hugh Taylor, MD, as New President

The American Society for Reproductive Medicine is proud to announce Hugh Taylor, MD, of Yale University as our new president.

Dr. Taylor is the Anita O’Keeffe Young Professor and Chair of the Department of Obstetrics Gynecology and Reproductive Sciences at Yale School of Medicine and Chief of Obstetrics and Gynecology at Yale-New Haven Hospital. He also is Professor of Molecular, Cellular and Developmental biology at Yale University. His clinical interests include IVF, infertility, endometriosis, implantation, menopause, uterine anomalies and Asherman’s syndrome.

Dr. Taylor is internationally known for his studies on the endometrium and endometriosis. He combines the latest medical therapies with surgeries when needed to provide optimal care for women with pain or infertility related to endometriosis, a common, painful condition in which endometrial tissue grows outside the uterus.

Dr. Taylor is a board-certified specialist in Obstetrics and Gynecology and in Reproductive Endocrinology. His basic science research focuses on uterine development, endometriosis, endocrine disruption, and on stem cells. He is a recipient of 15 National Institutes of Health research grants, and directs the Yale Center for Reproductive Biology. Dr. Taylor has published more than 400 articles in leading medical journals and is a member of the National Academy of Medicine.

Dr. Taylor will be taking over the role from current president, Catherine Racowsky, PhD, who states, “ASRM has been an integral part of my professional life for 30 years, and it was an honor to serve as President. I am excited to see how Dr. Taylor will continue the important work of ASRM, particularly in a time when advocating for access to care, patient education, and fertility research are vitally important.”

On becoming president, Dr. Taylor says, “I am excited to collaborate with and lead a group of talented researchers and medical professionals who understand the impact of reproductive medicine research. There are so many unsolved issues that affect people from birth, so research and practice around reproduction can impact a number of patients throughout their lives.”
