ReproUnionReproductive Medicine Across Borders
When asking young people, most envision a life with children, but reproductive challenges affect up to 25% of couples in Scandinavia. Every 8th woman never becomes a mother, and every 5th man never becomes a father.
With a new research and innovation paradigm within reproductive medicine in the Øresund Region, ReproUnion wants to meet current and future demands of preventing, managing, and treating infertility. Infertility is recognized as a disease by the WHO, but despite revolutionary developments in the techniques for assisted reproduction, the success rate is still below 30%.
ReproUnion drives fertility collaboration across borders and disciplines between academia, hospitals, and industry. Our aim is to understand the underlying reasons of infertility and to personalise and improve fertility treatment. We also work on preventive initiatives to ensure that the society and young people are equipped with the right information to make informed choices about family planning.

On the 4th of August Nature published the findings from a global collaboration of scientists, who have identified nearly 300 gene variations that influence reproductive lifespan in women. This can lead to potential new targets for fertility treatments as well as ways to improve the prediction of early menopause.
