Professional Interests

Dr. Sangita Jindal is an Associate Professor in the Department of Ob/Gyn and Women’s Health, and Laboratory Director of Montefiore’s Institute for Reproductive Medicine and Health.  Dr. Jindal received her Ph.D in reproductive physiology at the University of Toronto. In addition to her clinical expertise in all aspects of in vitro fertilization, andrology and infertility-related chemistry, Dr. Jindal supervises translational research on alterations in gene expression associated with ovarian aging in women.  Dr. Jindal is active on several national committees within The American Society for Reproductive Medicine (ASRM), and most recently, she served as national president for the Society for Reproductive Biologists and Technologists (SRBT), the affiliate society within ASRM representing all scientists and laboratorians in reproductive biology.
