A Look Inside Cutting-Edge Endometriosis Research

Want to learn more about the world of endometriosis research? Science writer Rachel E. Gross wrote a New York Times profile on the brilliant Dr. Linda Griffith, who has been studying endometriosis for over a decade. Dr. Grfffith’s own journey with the disease led her to shift her research goals; “so many other people'' could study bones and liver, Dr. Griffith says, “but there was this one thing only I could do.” She proceeded to found the M.I.T. Center for Gynepathology Research in 2009 and has been working towards solving endometriosis ever since. Dr. Griffith was awarded an EndoFound grant in 2019 for M.I.T.’s New Engineering Education Transformation (NEET) program on the human endometrial microbiome. Dr. Griffith has also spoken at numerous EndoFound conferences. Learn more about Dr. Griffith’s work with us here!

A few months ago, Avery Orrall’s roommate walked into their apartment and found her on the floor. “I was completely immobile,” Avery writes, “alternating between periods of screaming and an inability to speak due to pain.” Now, after years of having seen countless doctors who dismissed her pain, she’s been diagnosed with endometriosis and recently had excision surgery. Thank you, Avery, for sharing your story.
