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.

Working Groups
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 and Ki Aston  

Clinics
Lead: Frank Tüttelmann, Ki Aston and Csilla Krausz
Participants: Rob McLachlan, Ewa Rajpert-De Meyts, Godfried van der Heijden and Stéphane Viville

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