Making Reproductive Longevity a Reality
Ageing of the ovaries happens much faster than other body systems in a woman, truncating her reproductive lifespan and resulting in deterioration of her overall healthspan. On a societal level, reproductive equality impacts women’s health, family planning, fertility, and career development. Can we intervene in that process and balance the scales? Together with the Buck Institute’s Global Consortium for Reproductive Longevity and Equality (GCRLE) and the generous support of the Bia-Echo Foundation, the NUS Yong Loo Lin School of Medicine and the GCRLE will showcase the science that can make reproductive longevity a reality. This webinar series, "Making Reproductive Longevity a Reality", aims to engage scientists, clinicians, academics, and policymakers in a collaborative dialogue to foster research to prevent or delay reproductive ageing.

Speakers

Host: Dr Huang Zhongwei
Clinician-scientist, Obstetrician & Gynaecologist, IVF Specialist @NUS Yong Loo Ling School of Medicine
Zhongwei is a clinician-scientist and MOH accredited assisted reproductive techniques (ART) specialist who focuses on managing couples with fertility issues. He completed his PhD in 2011 under Associate Professor Dagan Wells at University of Oxford on effects of reproductive ageing via understanding the mechanisms of human oocyte aneuploidy and utilizing human cumulus cells as a non-invasive biomarker of oocyte quality. Passionate to find ways to ameliorate the detrimental effects of reproductive ageing on fertility and health outcomes of women, Zhongwei’s research focus is on unravelling the biology of ovarian folliculogenesis to change the irrevocability of reproductive ageing in women to that of reproductive longevity and enhanced health-span by means of rejuvenation of her ovarian follicles.
Host: Dr Jennifer Garrison
Faculty Director @Global Consortium for Reproductive Longevity & Equality and Assistant Professor @Buck Institute for Research on Ageing
Jennifer wants to understand how disruptions in communication between the brain and the rest of the body lead to systemic ageing. She is particularly interested in the complex interactions between the ovary and brain during middle-age and hopes to identify the neuronal factors that lead to the onset of reproductive decline in females. Jennifer received her PhD at UCSF in Chemistry and Chemical Biology where she was a National Science Foundation Fellow and an ARCS Scholar, and was a Helen Hay Whitney Foundation Postdoctoral Fellow at the Rockefeller University. She was named an Alfred P. Sloan Foundation Neuroscience Research Fellow and an Allen Institute for Brain Science Next Generation Leader and is the recipient of a Pathway to Independence Award and a Maximizing Investigators’ Research Award (MIRA) for Early Stage Investigators from the National Institutes of Health, and a Glenn Medical Foundation Award for Research in Biological Mechanisms of Ageing.
