CHaPRE support recipient Kate Clancy presents results on endometrial function to AAPA, Anchorage, Alaska

March, 2006, Yale Biological Anthropology candidate Kate Clancy presented results of CHaPRE sponsored research at the American Association of Physical Anthropologists annual conference in Anchorage, Alaska. Clancy reported that endometrial thickness during the second half of the menstrual cycle, as assessed by transvaginal ultrasound measurements, exhibited a unique decline among rural Polish women. Clancy postulated that such a response may be indicative of an adaptive response to energy availability.
