In memoriam: Robert N. Taylor MD, PhD

28 January 2024

The WES Senior and Early Career Boards and Members across the globe offer our condolences and celebrate the exceptional life of Robert N. Taylor. Professor and Dean, Dr. Taylor served WES as a Senior Board member from 2005-2017, holding the Executive Board office of Secretary from 2011-2017, after which he has continued to serve as a WES Senior Ambassador.

A revered clinician and scientist, he led much of the foundational discoveries in cytokine activity and angiogenic underpinnings of endometriosis. Most of us, however, will be forever in his debt for his intense focus on mentoring – marked by his warm welcoming, insightful criticism, thoughtful encouragement, and firm collaboration. Our thoughts are with his wife, Dr. Sarah Berga, and their family at this difficult time.
