The Oncofertility Consortium seeks out ways to encourage collaboration between oncologists and reproductive endocrinologists and develop opportunities for training new oncofertility scholars who can bridge the gap between these disciplines and effectively communicate fertility-preservation options to patients at the time of their diagnosis, before treatment begins.
In this section, you can find out more about the National Physicians Cooperative (NPC), a national network of institutions dedicated to facilitating the translation of basic reproductive physiology research to viable fertility-preservation options for patients diagnosed with cancer and other serious diseases.
Did you know that cancer treatments can affect the fertility of men, women, and children? Fertility preservation methods are most effective when used before cancer treatments begin.
For information about fertility preservation or to get a referral to a fertilty preservation center near you, please call the FERTLINE! This resource is available to patients, families and health care professionals.
