EFA’s Sixth Annual Medical Conference: Ending Endometriosis Starts at the Beginning
My name is Adam Romoff and I am a member of the department here. It is a privilege to introduce a member of the esteemed faculty of this extraordinary conference. It is also a particular privilege to be a colleague of Dr. Seckin. I am a huge fan of his. Not only his clinical and surgical brilliance but also his keen appreciation of the blend of basic science research, epidemiology, genetic research and how that kind of research and basic science underpinning can lead to the artful practice of medicine and moving the practice of medicine into the next century. I am a huge admirer of yours doctor.
As regards our esteemed faculty our keynote speaker today is Dr. Robert Taylor, who is vice chairman for research in the Department of OBGYN at Lake Forest. His early graduate work at Baylor involved the biology of estrogen. His post-doc work at the Howard Hughes Medical Institute at UCSF involved the regulation of placental angiogenesis by growth factors and their receptors. Certainly a biology not too far removed from the pathophysiology of endometriosis.
