Friday, 13 November 2015

Dr Mark Baker has been awarded more than $411,000 in NHMRC Project Grant funding commencing in 2016 for his research project Understanding idiopathic male infertility: Biomarkers to assist in the diagnosis and assisted reproductive technology outcomes.


About the project

In order to help in the diagnosis of male infertility, we have found several biomarkers that can be readily and quickly used to determine if a mans spermatozoa are infertile. Not only will this save time and money for couples involved in IVF, but help to avoid unnecessary, often invasive medical procedures that are currently used.
