Prof Peter Rogers
Peter Rogers is the Professor of Women’s Health Research, University of Melbourne Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology and the Director of Research at the Royal Women’s Hospital, Australia’s largest specialist Women’s Hospital. His research interests are focussed on female reproductive biology and include endometriosis, heavy menstrual bleeding, uterine fibroids, pelvic pain, implantation and uterine receptivity. He currently leads a program of 20 clinical and basic scientists funded through the Australian Medical Research Future Fund working to improve diagnosis and treatment of endometriosis. Over the past 35 years he has published over 290 scientific articles and successfully supervised more than 50 postgraduate research students. He is currently a member of the Australian Federal Endometriosis Advisory Group for the National Action Plan for Endometriosis.
