Mayo Clinic researchers are studying ways to improve diagnosis and treatment of PCOS. Specific efforts involve developing a targeted therapy for PCOS as well as investigating the causes of insulin resistance in women with PCOS in order to prevent the development of obesity, diabetes and other risk factors for heart disease.

Mayo Clinic researchers are also studying PCOS in adolescent girls.
