Clinical Trials

​Combined Letrozole and Clomid in Women With Infertility and PCOS

​Principal Investigator: Rachel Mejia, DO

Study: NCT02802865

Women who are attempting to conceive are invited to participate in a research study to investigate two different treatments for women with polycystic ovary syndrome and infertility. To learn more, please email CLC-PCOS@uiowa.edu or call 319-356-8862. 


Gynecologic Oncology Studies

Gynecologic oncology researchers at the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics are are currently enrolling patients in studies that are testing the effectiveness of different drugs or radiation therapy; eligibility will depend on disease type, progression, recurrence, and other factors. Search our database, and next to MOG, select Gyn Onc.


Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility Tissue Bank Research Program

Principal Investigator: Donna Santillan, PhD

The Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility Tissue Bank Research Program collects tissue samples from women who are already patients in the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics. If a patient agrees to participate in the program, samples are taken at the same time regular lab work is being conducted. For example, when a patient is having blood drawn, the technician may take an additional 1-2 teaspoons of blood to be used for the tissue bank. Similarly, if a patient is providing a urine sample, we may collect a small portion of the excess. Access to these samples allows researchers to better understand genetic disorders and diseases related to reproductive endocrinology and infertility. Download the REI Tissue Bank fact sheet to learn more. PDF iconREI Tissue Bank Fact Sheet.pdf


Maternal Fetal Medicine Tissue Bank Research Program

Principal Investigator: Donna Santillan, PhD

The Maternal Fetal Medicine Tissue Bank Research Program collects tissue samples from women who are already patients in the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics. If a patient agrees to participate in the program, samples are taken at the same time regular lab work is being conducted. For example, when a patient is having blood drawn, the technician may take an additional 1-2 teaspoons of blood to be used for the tissue bank. Similarly, if a patient is providing a urine sample, we may collect a small portion of the excess. After your baby is delivered, excess cord blood and a sample of the placental tissue will be taken. Your medical care will not be affected by whether you choose to participate in this study. Access to these samples allows researchers to better understand, treat, and prevent obstetrical conditions such as gestational diabetes, preterm labor, genetic disorders, and preeclampsia.
