Paolo Rinaudo, Ph.D., M.D.

Fertility specialist

Dr. Paolo Rinaudo is a specialist in reproductive endocrinology and fertility at the UCSF Center for Reproductive Health. In addition to caring for patients with fertility and endocrinological problems, Rinaudo conducts research on pre-implantation embryo development and the long-term consequences of in vitro culture. He is the recipient of numerous prestigious honors and awards, including the ASRM/Serono grant in reproductive biology and the President Presenter Award at the 50th annual meeting of the Society for Gynecological Investigation, Washington, DC. He is a member of professional societies, such as the American Society for Reproductive Medicine, American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology and Society for Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility.

Rinaudo earned a medical degree at Torino Medical School and a doctorate at Torino University in Torino, Italy. He completed a residency in obstetrics and gynecology at Yale University, followed by a fellowship in reproductive endocrinology and infertility at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania. He is an assistant professor in residence in the department of obstetrics and gynecology at UCSF.
