Your Help Is Needed

The Centre for Menstrual Cycle and Ovulation Research is a not-for-profit woman-focused research centre. We provide information to medical practitioners, health care professionals and women of all ages about new and ongoing research. We value women’s self knowledge and experiences of their body.

Your donation will help to provide direct research and information resources available to an ever-growing public and ensure that CeMCOR’s work flourishes and expands to answer the needs of our community.

In anticipation of Dr. Jerilynn Prior's eventual retirement, CeMCOR has begun an endowment fund that will make it possible in the future to attract an outstanding clinician-researcher at the professor level to continue to provide much-needed endocrine research and leadership in the field of women's health. You can read more about this fundraising initiative here.
