Fenwick Research Fellowship!

Dr. Ronn is a first-year clinical fellow in Gynaecologic Reproductive Endocrinology & Infertility at Mount Sinai Hospital. A native Montrealer, she completed her studies at McGill University School of Medicine and continued on to residency at Queen's University. On the heels of her graduation, she accepted a position in one of the busiest R.E.I. divisions in Israel at Jerusalem’s Shaare Zedek Medical Center, where she worked for three years as a staff obstetrician and gynaecologist and further focused her interests in the field of R.E.I., both as clinician and researcher. Ruth is committed to identifying, implementing and evaluating systemic improvements to patient care and is concurrently working on her Masters in Public Health at Johns Hopkins University to this end.

Her receipt of the William S. Fenwick Research Fellowship will support her collaborative projects with molecular genetics and embryology in studying mitochondrial DNA of embryos, as well as other aspects in preimplantation genetic testing. Dr. Ronn is currently working with Dr. Elena Kolomietz, Dr. Pat Chronis-Brown and Dr. Ellen Greenblatt on the projects titled "Mitochondrial DNA copy number as marker for reproductive outcome (retrospective study) and part b) IVF vs ICSI for PGT-A and Rate of mosaicism with NGS". 

Dr. Ronn is very pleased with this award and the good it will bring to the research project.

"This will hopefully translate to improving the selection of embryos and to helping women conceive with assisted reproductive technologies," said Dr. Ronn.
