Who We Are
Our Consortium

We are an international consortium of basic and clinical scientists working in the field of male infertility genetics. By joining forces we aim to accelerate the discovery, replication and validation of genetic causes of male infertility and translation of these results into routine patient care. The following members are part of the steering commitee:

Working Groups

 

 

 

Within the consortium we have formed 3 key working groups, each focused on specific aspects of male infertility research and diagnostics. In the different working groups, we will coordinate and harmonize, clinical phenotyping and patient inclusion, genetic studies and bioinformatics as well as functional studies.

Genomics
Lead: Don Conrad and Joris Veltman
Participants: Frank Tüttelmann, Ki Aston

Clinics
Lead: Frank Tüttelmann, Ki Aston, Csilla Gabriella Krausz
Participants: Rob McLachlan, Ewa Rajpert-De Meyts

Functional validation
Lead: Moira O’ Bryan
Participants: Don Conrad, Kristian Almstrup
