Dr. Bo Yu's team is interested in assisted reproductive technologies (ART) and ovarian carcinogenesis.  The main goals are to:

  1. Develop non-invasive preimplantation and preconception genetic testing;
  2. Understand the initiating events of ovarian cancer for early detection; and
  3. Examine the impact of ART on the long-term health and future generations.

Dr. Yu's team uses animal and organoid model, and a combination of cellular & molecular biology, genomics, and molecular imaging methods in their studies.

Dr. Bo Yu, MD, MS is an Assistant Professor in the Division of REI, Department of OBGYN.  Dr. Yu received a master’s degree in Nutrition from Clemson University before starting her medical career. After graduating from University of Michigan Medical School with Distinction in Research, she completed her residency in OBGYN at Columbia University and subsequent REI fellowship at the NIH.  Dr. Yu received research training through the NIH-funded Reproductive Scientist Development Program (RSDP).  Prior to joining Stanford, she was an Assistant Professor at Albert Einstein College of Medicine and University of Washington. Her clinical interests include female infertility, assisted reproductive technologies, and oncofertility.

Dr. Yu’s lab is interested in ovarian physiology and pathology, as well as assisted reproductive technologies (ART). The main goals are to (i) develop non-invasive preimplantation genetic testing, (ii) examine the impact of ART on the long-term health and future generations, (iii) understand the initiating events of ovarian cancer for early detection. Yu lab uses a combination of cellular & molecular biology, genomics, animal model, and molecular imaging technologies to better understand molecular and pathological processes.
