Research Summary:
Dr. Batt is a Professor of Clinical Gynecology. His 40-years of patient care and collaboration with colleagues in the investigation of acquired and developmental endometriosis has advanced our understanding of their pathogenesis. His theory of Müllerianosis (2007) predicted that müllerian tissue - misplaced during organogenesis – would be discovered in human female fetuses. This theory has been confirmed by the research of other investigators. In 2016, Dr. Batt and colleagues explained the developmental pathogenesis of benign endometriosis, endosalpingiosis and endocervicosis and their malignant transformation in phenotypic males. A devotion to life-long learning enriches his teaching. Dr. Batt brings a unique perspective to learning, a perspective born of research applied to the treatment of endometriosis-related infertility as well as an extensive knowledge of endometriosis and related müllerian diseases. Currently Dr. Batt is writing the second volume of the history of endometriosis.
