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:
Newcastle University and Radboud University

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.
Lead: Don Conrad and Joris Veltman
Participants: Frank Tüttelmann and Ki Aston
Lead: Frank Tüttelmann, Ki Aston and Csilla Gabriella Krausz
Participants: Rob McLachlan and Ewa Rajpert-De Meyts
Lead: Moira O’ Bryan
Participants: Don Conrad, Kristian Almstrup and Lee Smith
Please contact us if you want to join any of these working groups and contribute to our mission, to identify and characterize the genetic causes of male infertility, allowing for improved diagnostics, development of novel treatments and enhanced patient care.
