UNM Doctor Named to NIH Study Section on Reproductive Endocrinology

Kimberly Leslie, M.D., professor and chief of the Division of Maternal-Fetal Medicine and the Reproductive Molecular Biology Laboratory in the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at the UNM School of Medicine, has been named to the National Institutes of Health Reproductive Endocrinology Study Section.


Part of the NIH's Center for Scientific Review, study sections are panels of experts established according to scientific disciplines or current research areas for the primary purpose of evaluating the scientific and technical merit of grant applications. 


Reproductive Endocrinology is a specialty devoted to the diagnosis and treatment of infertility and other reproductive health problems through various techniques.


Leslie also is program co-director of the Women's and Hormone-Dependent Cancer Program at the UNM Cancer Research & Treatment Center and leads a team of researchers conducting breakthrough research into a blood test to detect and determine the recurrence of endometrial cancer.


Founded in 1972, the UNM Cancer Research & Treatment Center is the only academic health care facility that is dedicated to both cancer research and patient care.
