Professor Bernardo Colombo has made available to the Department of Statistical Sciences a database that was collected and organised over several years of intense and skilful work. Both for quality and richness of the information available, it represents a unique source of data to study the biometry of a woman’s menstrual cycle. Professor Colombo has been actively involved in the design, the collection, the analysis and the dissemination of the data and has started several projects of both national and international relevance with gynaecologists, demographers, biostatisticians, public health experts, statisticians and social scientists (such as theologists and expert ethicists). These collaborations resulted in numerous publications on major international journals and the variety of findings poses the basis for stimulating additional research exploiting the data.

Starting from 2006, the Department of Statistical Sciences has made the data available to all researchers interested in pursuing further research in this area. To this end, the Department (which formally owns the copyright of the data) invites all researchers who are potentially interested to write a proposal clarifying aims and methods of their intended research as well as the value added to their work that would result from gathering access to the data.
