Personal profile


Dr Rui Wang is a reproductive epidemiologist and NHMRC Emerging Leadership Fellow in the Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology, Monash University. He was trained as an Obstetrician and Gynaecologist before relocating to Australia in 2015, when he shifted his career into clinical epidemiology.

Rui’s research aims to improve reproductive health by providing the best available evidence on diagnosis, prognosis and treatments on conditions relevant to reproductive health. His main clinical interests are infertility, polycystic ovary syndrome, fallopian tube disorders, assisted reproduction, early pregnancy complications and preterm birth. His methods interest randomised controlled trials, and evidence syntheses, especially network meta-analysis and individual participant data meta-analysis.

He has led many large international collaborative evidence synthesis projects in reproductive medicine and has established several international collaborative networks involving trialists, clinicians and methodologists to share and reuse data from clinical trials, including the International Ovulation Induction IPDMA Collaboration and the IUI IPDMA Collaboration. He has been collaborating closely with multiple large fertility clinics in Asia on large randomised controlled trials and observational studies. He also collaborates with methodologists to improve reporting, data sharing and integrity of medical research.

Rui’s research expertise in reproductive health and research methodology has been recognised in editorial appointments at multiple journals. He is currently appointed as Deputy Editor of Human Reproduction, an editorial board member of BJOG and the Cochrane Gynaecology and Fertility Group.
