While research has lagged behind many other fields due to low federal investment, the field is growing due to recent funding in FY 2018 from the Department of Defense CDMRP (Congressionally-Directed Medical Research Program) we secured in partnership with Senator Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) and Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA).

We continue our work with our legislative partners on Capitol Hill to advocate for continued DOD funding of endometriosis as well as increased funding from the National Institutes of Health (NIH). 

Below, Columbia University Associate Professor Noemie Elhadad, PhD, discusses the landscape of endometriosis research and what she hopes to see in the future.
