Fertility & Hormone Preservation & Restoration Research & Resources


Research 

Our program participates in research to advance the field of fertility and hormone preservation and restoration to provide future options for our patients. Current studies include:

  • The National Physicians Cooperative, part of the Oncofertility Consortium, is a nation-wide collaboration of physicians whose mission is to protect and preserve reproductive health through the continuum of care and across the lifespan of patients. This is an NIH funded program that began at Northwestern University.
  • Ovarian Reserve After Cancer: Longitudinal Effects (ORACLE), which observes for changes in ovarian function during and after treatment for cancer. This study is in collaboration with the University of Pennsylvania.
