Dr. Crystal Chan
CLINICIAN SCIENTIST

Dr. Crystal Chan is an Assistant Professor, Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology, University of Toronto, as well as a Clinician Scientist, Lunenfeld-Tanenbaum Research Insitute, Mount Sinai Hospital.

Dr. Chan’s areas of interest include research examining the mechanisms behind uterine receptivity in IVF, as well as minimally-invasive fertility surgery.

In her work she has developed a non-invasive method of gene expression profiling of the endometrium, and pinpointed a set of candidate biomarkers of endometrial receptivity in natural cycle IVF—with the goal of validating these biomarkers to improve IVF pregnancy outcomes and reducing multiple embryo transfers. She is also leading or involved in studies to examine the role of extracellular vesicles in intercellular communication between the endometrium and the embryo.

After obtaining her medical degree and residency training at the University of Toronto, Dr. Chan completed a fellowship in Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility (REI) at Mount Sinai Hospital. She was then selected as a Visiting Scholar at the Center for Reproductive Sciences at the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF).

Dr. Chan received an international ASRM training award for research (2011) as well as the national Canadian Society for Clinical Investigation/CIHR prize for best research conducted by a resident at a Canadian medical school (2013). She is a Fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons and Physicians of Canada, with dual specialization in Obstetrics and Gynecology and REI.
