Amander Clark, PhD is the Founding Director of the UCLA Center for Reproductive Science, Health and Education. The goal of the Center is to provide a home for researchers and students interested in the science and social science of reproductive bodies, pregnancy and pregnancy outcomes. She is also a Professor of Molecular Cell and Developmental Biology in the College of Letters and Science. Professor Clark is an award-winning scientist and internationally recognized expert on topics in stem cell biology and reproductive science, being regularly invited to appear as a subject matter expert for media outlets including the New York Times, the Economist, the New Yorker and Public Radio. Results from the Clark Lab provide the basis for engineering models of reproductive organs. Her current emphasis is on engineering models of the ovary to understand ovarian development, as well as ovarian disease and dysfunction which affect millions of women and girls around the world. She also serves on the National Academies of Science Engineering and Medicine Board of Health Sciences Policy. In 2023 Professor Clark began her elected role as President of the International Society for Stem Cell Research, a global non-profit that promotes excellence in stem cell science and applications to human health.
