The fight against infertility
The Laboratory of Reproductive Biology participates in two ReproUnion projects, respectively on male fertility and about the link between infertility and the risk of developing diseases later in life.
The department is part of ReproUnion – a unique Danish-Swedish collaboration within the field of reproductive medicine in the Öresund Region, which receives funding from EU Interreg V. In ReproUnion there are collaborations between the Capital Region, Region Zealand, Skåne Region, Lund University, University of Copenhagen, Ferring Pharmaceuticals and Medicon Valley Alliance. ReproUnion is a world leader in the regions and is overcoming infertility and in meeting future demands for preventions of infertility problems.
The Laboratory of Reproductive Biology are involved in the following three projects described below.
