We have a close association with the University of Oxford, particularly through our involvement in important research projects and on-going developments in reproductive medicine. This helps us to understand the causes of infertility and improve the success of the treatments offered.
For this to happen, it is vital that we recruit volunteers to take part in studies. If you are interested in helping us then we can provide you with full details of our research projects and you will have the opportunity to discuss them with the nurse at your Planning Consultation. Please note that all research studies have inclusion and exclusion criteria.
Our current projects:
- E-Freeze – multi centre, randomised controlled trial (15/NS/0114) of freezing of embryos in assisted conception
- Endometrial Scratch Trial – multi centre, randomised controlled trial (16/SC/0151) of endometrial scratch in first time IVF
- HFEA Licensed Projects using surplus eggs or embryos
- Sperm projects – Analysis of DNA damage in human sperm (12/SC/0468)/ Receptor tyrosine kinases and germ cell development (C03.076)
- Cumulus Cells project (11/SW/334)
Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in taking part in one of the studies below and would like to know more details.
In addition to this The Fertility Partnership has published over 120 peer-reviewed papers since 2000 helping us to provide a firm evidence base upon which to not only treat our patients effectively but also to continually innovate and improve standards of care. With a combined output of over 5,000 assisted conception cycles per annum, The Fertility Partnership is one of the largest single providers of assisted conception with one 1 in every 12 cycles of treatment performed in the UK being under our care.
