Resources for Researchers

The Oncofertility Consortium has made instrumental basic science breakthroughs in follicle biology, and ongoing efforts are underway to translate these successes into clinical practice.  We developed a novel alginate hydrogel-based in vitro follicle culture system that maintains the follicle’s three-dimensional architecture as it grows.  This culture system, which was first optimized in a mouse model system, results in fertilization-competent female gametes that are capable of giving rise to live offspring.  We have extended this in vitro culture system to other species and have successfully cultured nonhuman primate and human follicles.  It is vastly important to disseminate key resources to researchers worldwide so that we can continually broaden our research horizons.  Here you will find Oncofertility-related basic science research resources including our key methods, protocols, and publications.
