Men are often forgotten both in terms of emotional support and reasons for miscarriage. That’s why we’re exploring male experiences of miscarriage, and working on tests and interventions with a focus on how their health could affect pregnancy.

We also aim to show how sperm DNA damage could contribute to miscarriage, and to develop remedial treatment.
