International Society for Fertility Preservation (ISFP)

  • Description
  • What is the ISFP?

    The Inter­na­tional Soci­ety for Fer­til­ity Preser­va­tion (ISFP) is an inter­na­tional non­profit orga­ni­za­tion, wholly inde­pen­dent of government.

    Mis­sion of the ISFP

    The Inter­na­tional Soci­ety for Fer­til­ity Preser­va­tion is founded upon the guid­ing prin­ci­ples of integrity and diver­sity of all inter­na­tional soci­eties. Its role is lead­ing and pro­mot­ing progress in fer­til­ity preser­va­tion by inter­na­tional coop­er­a­tion and col­lab­o­ra­tion. The ISFP is ded­i­cated to sci­en­tific inno­va­tion and advances in med­ical care in the field of fer­til­ity preservation.

    The ISFP will endeavor to

    • facil­i­tate net­work­ing between sci­en­tists and clin­i­cians worldwide
    • advo­cate patient rights and edu­cate the pub­lic as well as med­ical professionals
    • share cur­rent knowl­edge and new dis­cov­er­ies through the ISFP web­site, the ISFP World Con­gress, and var­i­ous workshops
    • pro­mote mul­ti­dis­ci­pli­nary col­lab­o­ra­tive research
    • develop a con­sen­sus and guide­lines on fer­til­ity preservation
    • serve and unite communities

    What does the ISFP do?

    Sup­ports scientists

    Sup­port­ing excel­lence and sci­en­tific progress in the field of fer­til­ity preser­va­tion is at the heart of the society’s work.

    Encour­ages research

    The soci­ety encour­ages clin­i­cal sci­ence and research activ­i­ties on repro­duc­tion in the con­text of fer­til­ity preser­va­tion for patients at risk of pre­ma­ture gonadal failure.

    Pro­vides sci­en­tific advice

    The soci­ety can pro­vide physi­cians and sci­en­tists with inde­pen­dent and objec­tive sci­en­tific advice on a wide range of issues. This advice is based on the lat­est evi­dence from world experts in the field.

    Holds meet­ings and events

    Every other year, the ISFP holds its offi­cial sym­po­sium. The society’s inau­gural event will be held in Brus­sels in Decem­ber 2009. The aim is to bring together lead­ing sci­en­tists to dis­cuss new and excit­ing devel­op­ments in fer­til­ity preservation.

    Pro­motes inter­na­tional relations

    The ISFP has links with ESHRE (Euro­pean Soci­ety for Human Repro­duc­tion and Embry­ol­ogy) and ASRM (Amer­i­can Soci­ety for Repro­duc­tive Med­i­cine), spe­cial inter­est groups on fer­til­ity preser­va­tion. It orga­nizes events to show­case out­stand­ing world­wide research and encour­ages inter­na­tional sci­en­tific collaboration.

    Rewards achievement

    Out­stand­ing sci­en­tific achieve­ment will be rec­og­nized through prizes awarded by the ISFP at its bien­nial meeting.
