Brochure – Supplement Scientific Research
To make medical progress, continuous scientific research is needed. However, such research is not possible without the contribution of patients willing to donate reproductive body material ( oocytes, sperm, embryos).
Therefore, in this Supplement SR we want to give you all the necessary information on the basis of which you can decide whether or not to release material for scientific research. This may involve material that is not usable for your treatment or usable material that was stored for you by means of freeze storage and that has passed the legal or agreed storage period. In other words, we only conduct research with egg cells, sperm cells and embryos that you yourself cannot (or can no longer) use.
