RRM Research Updates: Hormonal monitoring of the menstrual cycle, with comparison to ultrasound

Presented by Professor Leonard F. Blackwell, Massey University, New Zealand, Dr. Blackwell was trained in organic chemistry, biochemistry and reproductive physiology. He studied under Professor James Brown at the University of Melbourne in the physiology of ovulation and in the development of the Fertility Meter, a device for monitoring ovarian activity in all its manifestations and one of the only true quantitative point-of-care devices in existence.  For the past 36 years, Len was involved in the research and development of urinary assays as point-of-care diagnostic kits and recently with quantitative immune-chromatographic assays. Sadly, Dr. Blackford passed away in late 2020.
