Research

Mr Harish Bhandari was awarded the Doctor of Medicine (MD) degree by University of Warwick for his research work defining the endometrium (lining of the womb) in obese women and for investigating if obese environment causes perturbations in the endometrium around embryo implantation. His work has provided evidence to suggest that the poor reproductive outcome in obese women has a molecular basis that lies in the endometrium.
