She completed her postdoctoral trainings in reproductive biology in the Feinberg School of Medicine at Northwestern University; and stem cell/developmental biology in the Department of Embryology, Carnegie Institution for Science.

 

Grant: Young Investigators Achievement Award

Project: The effect of superovulation on early placentation and vasculogenesis

Recipient: Monica Mainigi, MD

Where: University of Pennsylvania Medical School

Monica A. Mainigi, MD is an Assistant Professor at the University of Pennsylvania in the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology. She obtained her MD from New York University School of Medicine followed by residency training in Obstetrics and Gynecology and a fellowship in Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility, both at the University of Pennsylvania.

Grant: Abby and Howard Milstein Innovation Award in Reproductive Medicine

Project: Identification of Intrafollicular Determinants Predictive of Oocyte & Embryo Developmental Potential

Recipient: Jon D. Hennebold, PhD, Co-Principal Investigator

Where: National Primate Research Center, Oregon Health & Science University

Dr. Hennebold is Professor and Chief of the Division of Reproductive & Developmental Sciences at the Oregon National Primate Research Center located at Oregon Health & Science University. He is also an adjunct faculty member in the Departments of Obstetrics & Gynecology and Physiology & Pharmacology. Dr. Hennebold currently serves as the Director of the ONPRC Assisted Reproductive Technologies (ART) Core, which supports research activities involving nonhuman primate studies of reproductive biology. His current research focus includes identifying and characterizing the molecular events that are necessary for the development and maturation of the ovulatory follicle, rupture of the follicle and release of the oocyte, as well as the development and regression of the corpus luteum. Understanding these events is critical for the development of novel contraceptives as well as new approaches for the treatment of infertility. Regarding the latter, Dr. Hennebold’s recent studies have focused on the role the intrafollicular environment plays on the development of a mature oocyte capable of fertilization and subsequent embryo development. Systematic genomic and metabolomic profiling of the ovarian follicle are currently being utilized to define the molecular characteristics of the ovarian follicle that results in the release of a fertilizable and developmentally competent oocyte. Dr. Hennebold received his PhD in Immunology and Cell Biology at the Department of Pathology, University of Utah School of Medicine in 1996. Dr. Hennebold then conducted his postdoctoral training in reproductive sciences at the University of Utah Department of Obstetrics & Gynecology. In 2000, he joined ONPRC as a Staff Scientist and was promoted to Assistant Scientist in 2003.
