Aging. She also holds appointments in the Department of Cellular and Molecular Pharmacology
at the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) and the Leonard Davis School of
Gerontology at the University of Southern California (USC). She is a passionate advocate for
women’s health and is pioneering a new movement to advance science focused on female

and how changes in the complex interactions between the ovary and brain during middle-age
lead to the onset of reproductive decline in females.
