Dr. Huszar is a Senior Research Scientist in the Department of Obstetrics, Gynecology and Reproductive Sciences, and Director of the Sperm Physiology Laboratory and the Male Infertility Program at the Yale School of Medicine. Dr. Huszar’s research interests have included the (a) biosynthesis of muscle proteins, contributing to Muscular Dystrophy; (b) the pathogenesis and treatment of preterm labor; and (c) since the establishment of the IVF program at Yale, he has directed the Sperm Physiology Laboratory. Dr. Huszar’s research focuses on spermatozoa structure and function, including development of sperm biomarkers of fertility that facilitated the objective assessment of sperm fertility, and facilitated a novel approach for an improved ICSI sperm selection that now is used all over the World.

Dr. Huszar received his Medical degree at the Medical School of Budapest University, and completed his residency in Obstetrics and Gynecology at Yale. Dr. Huszar is member of the Society of Gynecologic Investigation, the American Society of Reproductive Medicine, the American Society of Andrology, and the European Society of Human Reproduction and Embryology. Dr. Huszar has been on the Editorial Board of several Journals, including, the Biology of Reproduction, Journal of Andrology, Journal of Assisted Reproduction and Genetics, and Reproductive Technology Update.

Dr. Huszar’s honors include membership in the NIH Reproductive Biology Study Section, and other grant review panels of the NIH, National Science Foundation and March of Dimes Foundation. He was also awarded the Male Reproduction and Urology Prize from the American Society of Reproductive Medicine, and the President’s Prize from the Society of Gynecologic Investigation. Dr Huszar’s other honors include an invitation from the Nobel Prize Committee to participate in a Nobel Conference at the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm, election into the Hungarian National Academy of Sciences, and election for membership in the Connecticut Academy of Sciences and Engineering. Dr. Huszar has published over 120 papers and has been invited speaker over 80 National and International Congresses.

Harvey J. Kliman has, in addition to an M.D., a Ph.D. in cellular biochemistry from the University of Chicago. He is currently a Research Scientist in the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Yale University School of Medicine and the Director of the Reproductive and Placental Research Unit with a special interest in infertility and pregnancy complications. He has over thirty years of anatomic pathology training with particular emphasis in electron microscopy, immunohistochemistry, endometrial and placental pathology. He has over ten patents, including the patent for the Endometrial Function Test® (EFT®)—“The soil test for the endometrium®” and “Method and system for determining placental volume.” His contributions in the field of placental research include the development of the “Kliman” method of trophoblast purification, research into the mechanisms of trophoblast differentiation and invasion, the role and genesis of syncytial knots, the discovery of fetal fibronectin, and more recently, the clinical utility of abnormalities in placental villous growth patterns, especially trophoblast invaginations and inclusions, to diagnose genetic abnormalities in pregnancy, including autism.
