Welcome to Grant for Fertility Innovation


Welcome by Grant of Fertility Innovation

What is the Grant for Fertility Innovation (GFI)?

The aim of the GFI program is to identify and fund promising translational research projects related to innovative areas of technological improvement within the Embryology and Andrology laboratories – from oocyte retrieval, insemination, in-vitro development, embryo selection, to transfer and implantation. These projects should potentially impact the final outcome of patients undergoing assisted reproductive technology (“ART”) treatments by increasing pregnancy and take home baby rates.
