Women's Health Innovation Fund

The Michigan Medicine Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology is committed to improving the health of women locally and globally. We are pursuing groundbreaking research and discoveries that can lead to better care, improved treatments, and more positive results for countless women and families.

The Women’s Health Innovation Fund supports physicians and researchers who are in the early stages of launching important scientific research. The fund helps to develop the creative ideas and revolutionary studies that could lead to the next big breakthrough in medicine.

Oftentimes, it can be difficult for researchers to obtain necessary funding for projects in their beginning phases. This lack of support could prevent many bold new ideas from progressing into the discoveries and advances that change women’s lives.

How You Can Make a Difference

Research and innovation are essential to enhancing medicine, uncovering new therapies, and developing new technology that can improve the care available to women. 

Support for crucial studies and bold new approaches to medicine can help us to identify problems, find cures, and provide greater hope to women and families.

Philanthropic partnerships allow U-M researchers to pursue goals in obstetrics and gynecology, fertility and reproductive health, pregnancy and childbirth, surgery, family planning, gynecologic cancers, and many other areas impacting women.

Gifts to the Women’s Health Innovation Fund ensure that the brightest ideas and most promising concepts have every opportunity to develop and make a difference in women’s health.
