Is anyone doing anything about endometriosis? And of course the answer is yes. One of the key questions that we have already addressed a little bit that we are thinking of scientifically is what even is endometriosis? You all have seen the pictures, you all know from your own experiences that it looks different in different women. It presents with different symptoms, it has different responses to treatment. It has different long term and short term consequences. We do not understand the root of any of these differences. But we know that they must be important, particularly for considering development of diagnostics and treatments.
