​Our Research

Nearly 60,000 girls, adolescents and young adult women are diagnosed with cancer each year. More than ever, young people will survive cancer and can look forward to the future. Cancer treatment can affect future fertility, pregnancy and the menopause.

Our research group conducts observational and interventional studies to help young cancer survivors improve their reproductive health.
