Current Research

Pacific Reproductive Center recognizes the importance of original medical research for our patients. PRC takes this responsibility seriously, and is an international leader in reproductive biology research. PRC is committed to making scientific contributions to our field, both from our own investigations and with collaborative study with colleagues elsewhere. Our team’s peer-review medical publications (indexed by the U.S. National Library of Medicine/PubMed) are linked below:
