On the 14th of December 2021 Reproduktionsmedicinsk centrum (RMC) in Malmö opened the doors to their new top-modern facilities. With more operating and consultation rooms up to twice as many fertility patients can be treated and the new facilities also support ReproUnion research activities.
With over 35 years in the reproductive medicine industry, Bernadette brings a wealth of experience to the partnership, said Jens Sønksen when welcoming her to ReproUnion’s Executive Board in the autumn 2021.
The first week of November marks the European Fertility Week – and this year, for the first time ever, it is shedding light on male infertility issues and men’s health.

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.
In collaboration with scientists from 20 Universities around the world, ReproUnion colleagues at Rigshospitalet have uncovered how a gen-mutation is a reason for missing sperm cells. This is for the first time described in relation to infertility in a newly published article in the prestigious New England Journal of Medicine
In June, the message about the ReproUnion Biobank and Infertility Cohort (RUBIC) spread across Danish, Swedish and scientific media – exactly one year after RUBIC enrolled the first infertile couples!
