Congratulations to David Abbott, PhD, of the UW Ob-Gyn Division of Reproductive Sciences! His publication “Adipose Insulin Resistance in Normal-Weight Women With Polycystic Ovary Syndrome” was in the top 10 percent of most-cited articles published in the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology and Metabolism in 2018-19.

Abbott suggests the high citation rate involves an article that found, among other things, that the most highly significant change in gene expression in lean women with PCOS parallels that identified in his lab’s fetal testosterone-induced PCOS-like monkeys.
