As a clinically trained andrologist and reproductive biologist, my expertise and research focus is in the evaluation of men with infertility as well as the interface of male factor treatment with novel assisted reproductive technology. We have established a testicular tissue bank for fertility preservation for boys and men, which has rapidly become one of the largest worldwide bio-banking systems in this field, and I am a national referral specialist for Klinefelter syndrome and other hypogonadism patients. My work has led me to establish the first in vitro propagation system for human SSCs (JAMA November 2009) which has been called a milestone in autotransplantation of human SSCs (Nature Reviews Urology February 2010).
