North London Fertility Support Group
Time & Location
About the Event
Join us in person on Monday 10th February at 6.30pm at our North London Fertility Support Group.
***We are delighted to be joined by special guest speaker Professor Sheryl Home***
Sheryl is an HCPC registered Clinical Scientist with a special interest in male fertility. She spent a large part of her career as an academic research scientist in the field of oocyte maturation, funded by the National Institutes of Health in the USA. For many years she served as Scientific Director of several fertility clinics in the UK working in both the public and private sectors. During this time, she became aware that male fertility is considerably marginalised and as a result, opened Andrology Solutions in 2007, the first and only HFEA licensed clinic of its kind, dedicated to male infertility. She has collaborated on many research projects and is the author of numerous scientific articles, abstracts and book chapters in the fertility field. Her studies include investigating calcium signalling in sperm and more recently, the role of oxidative stress and infection on sperm quality. Sheryl has been responsible for introducing and CE marking novel state of the art testing for male infertility, including a chemiluminescence assay for measuring seminal reactive oxygen species.
There will also be time for you to share your story with other people going through a fertility journey if you wish to do so. This is a safe space to be heard and acknowledged or simply to listen and relate. We welcome everyone facing fertility challenges, men, women and couples.
