Dr Roseanne Rosario appears in Wellbeing of Women video blog

CRH’s Roseanne Rosario has been selected to feature in one of the Wellbeing of Women videos created for their website.

Dr Rosario describes her ground-breaking research into Fragile X- associated premature ovarian insufficiency.

1 in 100 women develop premature ovarian insufficiency (also called premature menopause), before the age of 40. In many cases no cause is identified but the commonest genetic cause is called Fragile X-associated premature ovarian insufficiency (FXPOI).

FXPOI reduces the function of the ovaries and can cause irregular menstrual cycles, early menopause and infertility.

Watch her video, filmed in our CRH labs, to learn more about her work:
