Gwendolyn Quinn, PhD
Professor at the department of population health, New York University School of Medicine, NY, US
“My interest in reproductive health stems from working in maternal and child health and LGBTQ+ access to care. I’ve observed that the health care system in the US is built for people who ‘fit the mold’ — wealthy, insured, heterosexual, cisgender people who are generally in good health. I’d like to participate in the creation of a health care system that meets the needs of everyone, especially those who do not fit the mold.”
Areas of expertise
  • Reproductive health
  • Cancer
  • Genetic counseling
  • Access to care
“I am driven by the goal of creating a difference in the world. It’s one thing to write papers that other scientists may read, but more important to do research that will make a change for the better in the lives of people seeking health care.”
