About Magee-Womens Research Institute & Foundation

As the largest medical research institute in the United States to focus exclusively on the health of women, Magee-Womens Research Institute & Foundation examines biological and societal factors and their impact on health. Key physiological processes and diseases that span a woman’s life cycle are pursued—from the formation of germ cells and embryos to reproductive life, pregnancy, menopause and aging.

The Institute’s basic and clinical scientists translate their discoveries into improved health for women at Magee-Womens Hospital of UPMC, and around the world.

Magee-Womens Foundation, the philanthropic arm of Magee-Womens Research Institute and Magee-Womens Hospital, supports women’s health research, enhanced patient care, and educational opportunities for members of the community and staff.
