A faculty member of the Wayne State University School of Medicine has been recognized for his leading efforts to mentor young researchers in the field of reproductive immunology and ovarian cancer.

Gil Mor, M.D., Ph.D., scientific director of the C.S. Mott Center for Human Growth and Development at the Wayne State University School of Medicine, received the Best Mentor Award from the International Society for Immunology and Reproduction.

Congress co-presidents Sanda Blois and Anke Diemert presented the award to Dr. Mor during the 15th World Congress of the International Society for Immunology and Reproduction, held in Hamburg, Germany, last September.

“I feel honored in receiving the recognition of both the national and international societies of reproductive immunology for our contributions on advancing the field of infections and immunological aspects of pregnancy,” said Dr. Mor, the John M. Malone Jr., M.D., Endowed Professor of Obstetrics and Gynecology.

Mor is a member of the Center for Leadership in Environmental Awareness and Research (CLEAR) project team focused on placental mammal models. CLEAR is a Superfund Research Program funded by the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences of the National Institutes of Health. The center is dedicated to understanding and mitigating adverse birth outcomes and serious developmental health problems that have been associated with exposure to volatile organic chemicals, a class of pollutants frequently present below the ground surface, especially in post-industrial cities like Detroit.
