Webinar Recording- Fertility Preservation in Girls with TS 2.17.21

What You Will Learn:
This webinar aims to inform parents and caregivers of girls with TS about the options available for fertility preservation as early as infancy. It explains why and how infertility occurs in the TS population, and considerations to help make informed decisions for your child.

About the Presenter:

Kutluk Oktay, MD, PhD, Professor of Obstetrics, Gynecology and Reproductive Sciences at Yale University School of Medicine, is a leading clinician-scientist in fertility preservation. Among his key contributions, development and performance of first successful orthotopic (Oktay & Karlikaya, NEJM 2000) and heterotopic  (Oktay  et al JAMA 2001 and Oktay et al Lancet 2004) ovarian transplantation procedures with cryopreserved tissue, development of tamoxifen and aromatase inhibitor supplemented ovarian stimulation protocols for breast cancer patients (Oktay et al, Journal of Clinical Oncology 2005), development of random start protocols (Oktay et al Fertil Steril 2008 and Sonmezer…Oktay Fertil Steril 2011), discovery of the impact of BRCA mutations on ovarian reserve (Oktay et al Journal of Clinical Oncology 2010)  and oocyte aging (Titus…Oktay, Science Translational Medicine 2013)  and development and performance of first successful  robot assisted ovarian transplantation techniques (Oktay et al, Am J Obstet Gynecol. 2016). He is also the founder and first chair of the Fertility Preservation Special Interest Group at American Society of Reproductive Medicine and co-chair of Fertility Preservation Guidelines Committee at the American Society of Clinical Oncology since 2005.  Dr. Oktay’s research has been funded by the National Institutes of Health and other sources for over 17 years. Dr. Oktay is the Medical Director of the Innovation Institute of Fertility Preservation and IVF and heads the Research Laboratory of Fertility Preservation and Reproductive Molecular Biology at Yale School of Medicine.

He has been repetitively named among the top doctors in his field by Castle and Connolly and other organizations in the USA and internationally. He has published over 200 manuscripts and book chapters and is currently the editor of the first textbook on ovarian cryopreservation and transplantation.

Dr. Oktay’s research laboratory and team are currently focusing on basic and translational research projects on improving methods of fertility preservation as well as identifying and targeting molecular mechanisms of physiological and chemotherapy-induced gamete aging. More specifically on the latter, Oktay laboratory is studying the mechanisms that lead to age-related diminishment of oocyte repair in human oocytes and sperm with the ultimate goal of discovering druggable targets to halt or reverse reproductive aging.
