People doing research

This study aims to determine the lifestyle and environmental factors that put men at risk of infertility.

Infertility is common. About 30,000 couples seek help to have a baby each year in Australia. What most people don’t know is that in about half the couples needing help, it is the man that has a fertility issue.

The causes of infertility in most men are still a mystery. There is some evidence that lifestyle and environmental exposures have something to do with it, but the research is limited.
