Dr. Woodruff studies the regulation of the ovarian follicle by peptide hormones. The major goals of her laboratory are to identify the mechanisms underlying ovarian follicle development, selection and recruitment and to provide new angles on ovarian disease and fertility conserving options for women. She has also developed a team of oncologists and fertility specialists to translate this work to women who will lose their fertility due to cancer treatment, and she has coined the term "oncofertility" to describe this work.
