We investigate how endocrine disruption affects children and men's health. A common aspect to our broad field of research is understanding the role of hormones in growth and reproduction.
We work with five core research areas:
- Male Infertility
- Testicular Dysgenesis Syndrome (including testicular germ cell tumours and GCNIS)
- Disorders of Sex Development
Patients are at the Heart of Our Research
The needs of patients treated at the Department of Growth and Reproduction at Rigshospitalet drive the research at EDMaRC. This close integration with the Department of Growth and Reproduction helps to quickly bring about changes to patient care through bettering diagnostic tools and treatment protocols.
Our research ranges from basic and functional studies carried out on tissue samples, via biomolecular analyses, chemical analyses and hormone assays to epidemiolo-gical studies.
