After completion of his residency training and fellowship in reproductive immunology at Mount Sinai Medical Center in New York City, he held various medical and administrative positions at some of the best hospitals and universities in the US. In 1981, Dr. Gleicher founded the Center for Human Reproduction (CHR), where he is currently Medical Director and Chief Scientist. As a consequence of CHR’s evolving scientific collaboration with The Rockefeller University, New York, N.Y., Dr. Gleicher was appointed Professor (Adj.) at the university in May 2015. He is also Professor (Adj.) at the Medical University Vienna.
Dr. Gleicher has published hundreds of peer-reviewed scientific papers, abstracts and book chapters, as well as edited textbooks and served as editor for many specialty journals. His editorial roles have included founding Editor-in-Chief for the American Journal of Reproductive Immunology (AJRI) and the Journal of In Vitro Fertilization and Embryo Transfer (renamed Journal of Assisted Reproduction and Genetics in 1992). Currently, he serves as Academic Editor for PLoS ONE, and is a member of multiple editorial boards.
In 2009, he was invited to give the prestigious Patrick Steptoe Memorial Lecture to the British Fertility Society, in recognition of his lifelong contribution to the advancements in reproductive endocrinology and infertility. A popular speaker at worldwide conferences, Dr. Gleicher travels extensively while maintaining his role in clinical patient care and research at CHR. He has been repeatedly one of a handful of reproductive endocrinologists in New York City listed by the New York Times Magazine on its “Super Doctors” list, as chosen by peers.
