Eric Scott Sills graduated from Vanderbilt University in 1987 and completed his subspecialty reproductive endocrinology fellowship at Cornell University in New York. After a 6-year term on the Board of Trustees for the Tennessee Department of Mental Health, Dr. Sills next served with a Presidential Search Advisory Committee for the Tennessee Board of Regents. In 2007, he was recruited back to New York as the first full-time reproductive endocrinologist in Dutchess County (RMA-Vassar Brothers). From there, Dr. Sills established the first collaborative among Israeli and Arab fertility experts to study IVF practice in the Middle East. He was appointed to the New York State Board for Medicine the following year. From his nearly 100 scholarly works, Dr. Sills has made several contributions to the medical literature. His published research on IVF was included in the NHS’ Clinical Guidelines for Fertility Assessment & Treatment (London, 2004), while his paper on identical twins was cited by the World Health Organization’s “Current practices in ART” (Geneva, 2002). The New Zealand Ministry of Health incorporated Dr. Sills’ data on assisted hatching in its national IVF guidelines (Wellington, 2005), and his Lancet report detailing asylum for forced sterilization victims was hailed by the Office of the U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees. Dr. Sills’ advocacy for restraint of PGD applications also influenced reproductive technology debate in the German Bundestag (Berlin, 2002). Dr. Sills is affiliated to many professional groups including the American Society for Reproductive Medicine, American College of Obstetricians & Gynecologists, American College of Surgeons, Irish Medical Organisation (Dublin), Royal Society of Medicine (London), Max Planck Society (Munich), and the New York Academy of Sciences.
