Linda Giudice, PhD, MD

Obstetrician, gynecologist and reproductive endocrinologist

Dr. Linda Giudice is an obstetrician, gynecologist and reproductive endocrinologist at UCSF Medical Center. She specializes in endometriosis, implantation and ovulatory disorders, infertility and assisted reproduction. She also is professor and chair of Obstetrics, Gynecology and Reproductive Sciences at the UCSF School of Medicine. In her research, she focuses on endometrial biology and placental-uterine interactions as well as environmental impacts on reproductive health.

Giudice earned a Ph.D. in biochemistry at UCLA and completed a postdoctoral fellowship at Rockefeller University, working under Nobel Laureate Gunter Blobel. She earned a medical degree at Stanford University and completed a residency in obstetrics and gynecology at Stanford and Washington University in St. Louis as well as a fellowship in reproductive endocrinology and infertility at Stanford. She served as director of the reproductive endocrinology and infertility division at Stanford before joining UCSF in 2005. Giudice is president-elect of the American Society for Reproductive Medicine and a member of the Institute of Medicine of the National Academy of Sciences.
