Professor Bart Fauser became Fellow ad eundem at the September 2015 Fellowship ceremony in London, England.
Professor Bart Fauser is Professor of Reproductive Medicine at the University of Utrecht, a world leader in reproductive medicine and has had a profound influence on modern clinical practice, training and inspiring a generation of researchers and new leaders in the field. He was largely responsible for a number of key developments in the field including:
- an international consensus on the definition of PCOS, the publication of which has led to a citation classic
- instigating a worldwide trend towards milder, less burdensome and safer IVF
- recently achieving recognition by national and international policy makers of the unmet health care needs of women.
Professor Fauser’s research interest has focused on the pathophysiology of human ovarian function and the pathology of PCOS and premature ovarian insufficiency (failure). He also has a significant research profile in the management of ovulation induction regimens for both anovulatory infertility and assisted conception treatments.
Professor Fauser’s work has been characterised by a constant questioning of received clinical wisdom and the advancement of understanding of physiology in order to improve patient care.
