Dr. Futterweit has a career commitment to the study of polycystic ovary\r\nsyndrome (PCOS). Currently he is studying the natural history of this disease; one\r\nof the the most common endocrine disorders of reproductive aged women. The\r\ncohort size is >800 patients followed for 2-15 years. Important issues that are to be\r\naddressed are the incidence rates of concomitant disease including heart\r\ndisease, diabetes, breast, uterine and pituitary dysfunctions. This is part of a\r\nnational PCOS Multisite Study.

In order to promote an ethical and transparent environment for conducting research, providing clinical care and teaching, Mount Sinai requires that salaried faculty inform the School of their relationships with such companies.
