Our research

By:

All of our research takes place at the NORDFERTIL research lab at the Karolinska Institutet in Stockholm, Sweden. At the moment there are no clinically available methods for preserving fertility in prepubertal boys, so our research is focused on the storage and use of testis tissue from young boys. We are particularly interested in the spermatogonial stem cells in these tissues and how they can be developed into sperm. Some of the questions we are interested in answering include:

klammer-65x353

Which are the best methods for cryopreserving testis tissue to protect the spermatogonial stem cells

- How can we monitor cancer cell contamination in cryopreserved testis tissue?

What are the culture conditions required for human spermatogenesis in vitro?
