When you express interest in a specific study, the information from your profile will be sent to the doctor conducting that study. If you're eligible to participate, you may be contacted by a nurse or study coordinator.
If you select a health category rather than a specific study, doctors who have active studies in that area may contact you to ask if you would like to participate.
In both cases, you will be contacted by the preferred method (email or phone) that you specified in your profile.
Understanding the presence of nuclear DNA damage in the spermatozoa of men with poor semen parameters. Our research in this area involves examining the role apoptosis during spermatogenesis and why ejaculated spermatozoa from men with poor semen parameters show variable levels of apoptotic proteins in their sperm compared to men with normal semen parameters. We are also interested in what the consequences of using these sperm to fertilize eggs are on the developing embryo and ensuing fetus.
