The Four Tracks of ACRLE
Research in ACRLE can be summarised into four key tracks
- Ovarian biology and senescence,
- Translational and clinical studies,
- Population health studies, and
- Public education and advocacy.
Ovarian Biology and Senescence
Acquire better understanding of changes in reproductive health with increasing age and preclinical studies to generate interventions that can be translated to clinical studies in Track 2.
Translational and Clinical Studies
Translate findings from the preclinical research in Track 1, and other relevant research, to clinical validation.
Population Health Studies
Investigate the determinants and health consequences of female reproductive health span and lifespan in Asian women over the life course and across generations.
Public Education & Advocacy
Public outreach program to raise awareness on female reproductive health issues and particularly reproductive health inequality in all its manifestations.
Usage of AI and Big Data
We will also harness artificial intelligence (AI) and big data for deeper synthesis of information and acceleration of findings. Our bioinformatics core will be a platform for analytics that will facilitate the generation of novel data, as well as for larger integration of studies across Asia.
Our use of AI platforms will also allow us to conduct research into female reproductive longevity-specific interventions with greater precision, calibrating data specific to women’s physiology with technology, and allow for targeted, precise and ultimately more optimal interventions.
To Actively Create Awareness & Conversation
Awareness and conversations around the topic of female reproductive longevity and equality in Asia is currently insufficient. Another key thread throughout our effort will be active community education, outreach, and advocacy. Effective educational efforts, coupled with biological, clinical, and population-based scientific advances will maximize the effectiveness of our approach. We aim to build awareness on the reproductive challenges women face, its consequences, and at the same time advocate solutions to address these challenges.
