The First 58 Years

Fifty-eight years ago, a small group of investigators studying hypertensive disorders of pregnancy proposed formation of an "Eclampsia" or "Toxemia" society. The first official meeting of "The Society of University Gynecologists" was held on June 15, 1953, at the Yale Club in New York City. The name was formally changed to "The Society for Gynecologic Investigation" at the annual meeting in Chicago the following year. A premier scientific organization in obstetrics and gynecology, the SGI now has 1,187 members throughout the world. One-third are basic scientists and two-thirds are clinical investigators. SGI members conduct basic, translational, and clinical investigation in the reproductive sciences and women’s health. Areas of focus include obstetrics, perinatology, reproductive genetics, gynecology and gynecologic oncology, endocrinology, reproductive physiology, biochemistry, pharmacology, immunology, epidemiology, reproductive infectious disease, and reproductive, stem cell, and developmental biology. Many members hold NIH grants or their international equivalents and/or serve on study sections and advisory councils for governmental agencies and private foundations.
