Dr. Reshef Tal is Associate Professor of Obstetrics and Gynecology and Reproductive Sciences at the Yale School of Medicine. He obtained his M.D. and Ph.D. in Molecular Biology at the Sackler School of Medicine (Tel-Aviv University). Following a postdoctoral research fellowship at the Lunenfeld Research Institute at the University of Toronto, he completed his residency in Obstetrics and Gynecology at Maimonides Medical Center, NY, followed by a fellowship in Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility at Yale University School of Medicine.

During his fellowship, Dr. Tal was accepted into the Women’s Reproductive Health Research (WRHR) scholar program, a National Institutes of Health (NIH) K12-funded physician-scientist career development program aimed at fostering the growth of young obstetrician-gynecologists into established, independent investigators in the field. His NIH RO1-funded laboratory is focused on investigating the role of mesenchymal stem cells and immune cells in embryo implantation, pregnancy maintenance and uterine remodeling with the ultimate goal of developing new therapies for patients with infertility. His clinical interests include infertility, IVF, polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS), recurrent pregnancy loss (RPL) and endometrial pathologies including Asherman’s syndrome, thin endometrium and implantation failure.

Dr. Tal is the recipient of many research awards including the New England Fertility Society/Ferring Fellow Research Award, the Society of Reproductive Endocrinology & Infertility (SREI)/American Society for Reproductive Medicine (ASRM) Fellow Research Award, Patterson Trust Fellow Award, Society for Reproductive Investigation (SRI) President's Plenary Award and the Albert S. McKern Award. Dr. Tal has published over 70 peer-reviewed scientific articles, authored 8 book chapters and also edited a book (Antimullerian Hormone: Biology, Role in Ovarian Function and Clinical Significance). In addition, he serves as an Associate Editor for the journal Reproductive Biology & Endocrinology (RB&E).
