Topic of Oncofertility Summer Reading List: Global Perspectives on Reproduction

Every summer, Teresa Woodruff sends out a summer reading list to the people in her lab. Because there isn’t much of a global perspective on Oncofertility yet, this year’s theme is “Global Perspectives on Reproduction” to prepare, hopefully, to create partnerships with the World Health Organization and other global health organizations.

The reading list will provide a foundation and an entry-point into the existing literature and includes some of the recent papers from the Oncofertility Consortium and, of course, the Oncofertility book by Teresa Woodruff (recently reviewed in the journal Fertility and Sterility — see blog entry dated June 4th).
