Making an Impact on Reproduction

Which discoveries have recently shaped our thinking about reproductive biology? In which direction is this research field going? At a time when the social and financial relevance of infertility is on the rise, and there is less money to spend, scientists need dependable information to help them decide which areas to focus their research on.

By bringing together input from top scientists interested in reproductive biology, the November 2008 issue of Nature Medicine reveals the papers that the reproduction community has chosen as the most important of the past three years. In addition, the issue features a series of commentaries written by key opinion leaders and decision makers, looking at the state of funding for reproductive biology in both the US and Europe.

This special issue also features a comprehensive review article on the progress of the field over the past six years, and how this knowledge is translating to the clinic to improve the diagnosis and treatment of diseases of reproduction.

The 11 news articles in the reproductive biology special also cover a range of cutting-edge discoveries: including a close look at the future of medical treatments delivered in utero and the discovery of gene changes linked to infertility, such as inherited mutations in a gene that apparently cause men to produce four-tailed sperm.
