The C.S. Mott Center for Human Growth and Development, a basic, research facility housing over 28,000 sq. ft. of laboratory space, is located on the medical campus of Wayne State University School of Medicine. The primary mission of the Mott Center is to foster basic and clinical biomedical research on reproduction and development.

The Perinatology Research Branch (PRB) is sponsored by the NIH and Wayne State University and provides a Maternal Fetal Medicine Fellowship with a 25-year history of excellence. The program has trained academic and clinical leaders worldwide.

We offer an integrated Ph.D. program incorporating the teaching, research and physical resources of two departments, Physiology and Obstetrics & Gynecology, at Wayne State University’s School of Medicine. This program offers interdisciplinary doctoral training in the Reproductive Sciences with the degree earned through the Department of Physiology. 

The Wayne State University Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology has been an internationally recognized academic center in women’s health and child development for the past 50 years. In 1999 our Department was recognized by National Institutes of Health (NIH) with funding to be one of the first Women’s Reproductive Health Research (WRHR) Career Development Centers in the United States, which has been continuously through 2020.
