Name: Frederick Sweet Country of Residence: USA Areas of Science:Medicine Comments:Since 1971, I have been a professor of reproductive biology at the School of Medicine at Washington University in St. Louis. My main areas of research are the molecular biosynthesis, transport, and mechanism of action of the female hormones. Practically, I have worked on the development of new birth control agents and also anti-cancer substances for treating hormone-associated cancers of the female reproductive system. In additon to laboratory research, my personal working interests are preventing unintended teen pregnancy locally, and human overpopulation globally.
