Aimee S. Chang, MD first became interested in reproductive medicine when she was a medical student studying the intricacies of how the brain at its most fundamental cellular and molecular levels influenced the menstrual cycle. She performed her initial research investigations while at the Yale University School of Medicine in the laboratory of one of the pioneers of reproductive neuroendocrinology. This interest blossomed into a career dedicated to the care of patients experiencing difficulties with fertility while studying and training at some of the leading universities and medical centers in the country.
