The Oncofertility Consortium (OC) is committed to exploring and expanding reproductive options for those who face fertility threatening conditions and/or medical treatments. To this end, the OC has created several resources, available through the OC-Scientific Help Agreement for Research Endeavors or OC-SHAREs program, to help the scientific community carry out basic research in support of this mission.
Currently there are three resources available to OC collaborators through OC-SHAREs: 1) access to the NPC Human Research Tissue Repository, 2) use of the Stadie Riggs Tissue Slicer, and 3) request for Follicle Culture Kits.
