Research

The Keogh Institute has been contributing to the research landscape for sexual health and fertility for the last thirty years.

Our research is largely focused on the link between endocrinology and reproductive health. Below are some examples of the research we are currently undertaking:

  • Investigating the link between thyroid function and ovulation in women undergoing IVF. It is hoped that results form this study will assist doctors in optimising thyroid medications to help women achieve pregnancies
  • Searching for DNA variations in women with polycystic ovary syndrome that may help to identify the genes causing polycystic ovary syndrome
  • Investigating the link between coeliac disease and osteoporosis via questionnaire
  • Determining the best hormonal treatment for controlling menstruation in severely intellectually disabled women.

We are also running clinical trials on type 2 diabetes, insulin resistance and human growth hormone deficiency.
