Professor Peter Rogers is the Professor of Women’s Health Research in the Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology at University of Melbourne. His lab is situated in the research precinct of the Royal Women’s Hospital with research interests spanning basic reproductive biology through to gynaecological problems.
Current areas of interest include common women’s health disorders such as heavy menstrual bleeding, uterine fibroids, endometriosis, pelvic pain and uterine aspects of infertility. Peter also runs a program investigating the application of synchrotron generated micro beam x-rays for tumour radiotherapy.
