Endometriosis can have a debilitating effect on women’s lives. It can take 7 to 10 years before a woman gets a diagnosis and, because the cause is unknown, there is no effective treatment or cure.

Endometriosis fertility and pregnancy
Our endometriosis research
Hudson Institute is leading research into women’s reproductive health and is home to some of the world’s top scientists in endometrial research.
Our researchers were the first in the world to discover stem cells in the endometrium and have made important discoveries in understanding how menstruation works.
By better understanding the disease, researchers hope to develop a non-invasive early diagnostic test, investigate the potential of non-surgical and non-hormonal treatment options, and improve detection of infertility in women with endometriosis.
Keep up-to-date with our critical endometriosis research via our ENDO newsletter.
Role of endometrial stem cells in endometriosis
Through this large project Prof Caroline Gargett aims to understand how endometriosis risk genes affect endometrial stem cells function and their role in causing endometriosis.
This knowledge may assist in designing new therapies for endometriosis. This important project is supported by a US$2 million grant from the United States.
