Fertility Research at CHR

Driving Force behind CHR’s Clinical Success

CHR is a rare private fertility center that combines clinical fertility care with a robust clinical and laboratory research program. In over 30 years since its inception, CHR researchers have published hundreds of research papers, many in prestigious medical journals like Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) and New England Journal of Medicine (NEJM). CHR’s medical journal publications are listed below.

Some of CHR’s original research findings brought revolutionary new approaches to the field of reproductive endocrinology and infertility. Involvement of autoimmunity in endometriosis is one; the now-routine transvaginal egg retrieval is another; and the most recent example is the introduction of DHEA supplementation into the treatment of women with diminished ovarian reserve.

CHR Explains

CHR’s focus has been the mechanism and treatment of diminished ovarian reserve for over a decade now, and many of our research publications are in this area. In the past few years, CHR has also expanded its laboratory research division significantly with 3 PhD-level scientists to conduct translational research in molecular biology and genetics. CHR’s Medical Director and Chief Scientist, Dr. Norbert Gleicher, emphasizes rigorous translational research because research is what drives innovation in fertility treatment at CHR, and our patients benefit directly from our research findings, which are “translated” into our clinical care program.

Infertility Clinical Trials

Clinical trials are considered the gold standard of research, and at any given time, CHR is likely to have more than one ongoing clinical trials. Some clinical trials recruit participants, while others may be open by invitation only.
