The Journal of Assisted Reproduction and Genetics (JARG) has recently published a special issue on fertility preservation. JARG’s Editor-in-Chief Dr. David F. Albertini wrote:
“JARG’s evolution since 2009 continues to synchronize with the emergence and maturation of the field of fertility preservation. Call it a subspecialty within the purview of REI, or a nascent subdiscipline of reproductive medicine and biology, but whatever lens it is viewed through today, fertility preservation as a concept and a practice is making its mark on a much broader landscape than could have been predicted 13 years ago”.
“Perhaps no better example of the principle that “it takes a village” to bring a field like fertility preservation into that of a tangible and constructive discipline is there than the Oncofertility Consortium founded by Teresa Woodruff and her colleagues at Northwestern University. This effort continues to inspire and guide a generation of clinicians and scientists on an international level, fostering a spirit of collaboration and commitment to a common goal much needed in these troubled times”.
