Miss Lisa Webber is a consultant gynaecologist and Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (RCOG) accredited subspecialist in reproductive medicine. She graduated from Oxford University Medical School and later obtained her PhD at Imperial College London, studying the development of preantral follicles in the normal and polycystic ovary. She specialises in disorders of ovarian function and all aspects of polycystic ovary syndrome, including the fertility and non-reproductive effects. She was previously a consultant at University College Hospital NHS Trust before re-joining Imperial College Healthcare. Lisa co-chaired the European Society of Human Reproduction and Embryology (ESHRE) guideline on premature ovarian insufficiency published in December 2015. She has published in The Lancet, Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism and the Journal of Endocrinology. She was a contributing author to the Oxford Textbook of Medicine (5th edition), the Oxford Textbook of Endocrinology and Diabetes and co-author of a patient information book entitled Infertility: The Facts.
