About E Scott Sills, MD PhD

Before returning to the United States, Dr. Eric Scott Sills managed the research portfolio for Ireland's largest independent reproductive biology unit. There, he lifted his faculty’s scholarly output to a level surpassing all five Irish medical schools combined. He has been active in full-time clinical practice since completing his fellowship at Cornell University, where he worked under fertility pioneers Gianpiero Palermo and Zev Rosenwaks. Dr. Sills has published over 100 scientific & policy papers, and is the only reproductive endocrinologist in the world to have co-authored works with both a Member of Congress (USA) and Member of Parliament (UK).

Dr. Sills is currently affiliated to the Center for Advanced Genetics in San Diego, CALIF (as Medical Director). His research on the advanced reproductive technologies has been presented before expert audiences on six continents. Having directed investigative teams in Europe and the United States, Dr. Sills has discovered three human gene mutations since 2001. Dr. Sills organized the first joint fertility research collaborative involving Arab and Israeli IVF clinics in 2007, and he accepted a Board of Regents nomination to the New York State Board for Medicine the following year.

Dr. Sills is board certified by the American Board of Obstetrics & Gynecology and is a Fellow of the American College of Obstetricians & Gynecologists, American College of Surgeons, Royal College of Physicians (Ireland), and Society of Biology (United Kingdom). Dr. Sills is a member of the Education Committee for the U.S. Federation of State Medical Boards and holds medical licensure and/or registration in California, New York, and the United Kingdom.
