Fertility Research

Research is an important tool in promoting fertility treatments and understanding the mechanisms of infertility.

I am an active researcher in the IVF unit at the Rabin Medical Center and at the Weizmann Institute of Science.

My research focuses on predicting response to treatment, adapting new diagnostic methods and innovative research on reduction in testosterone levels and its effects on our bodies.
