Personal Statement

We have worked hard to make The Ronald O. Perelman and Claudio Cohen Center for Reproductive Medicine at Weill Cornell Medical College a leader in the field of donor egg in vitro fertilization; not only in technical advances, but also with respect to screening donors, ethical issues and emotional support.

I appreciate the opportunity to work in this area. It is a privilege to help women to experience pregnancy and become mothers when it might otherwise not be possible."
