The FSH Society is sponsoring a new study conducted by Doris G. Leung, M.D. As we move ever closer to the trial phase, developing tools like this is extremely important, and we are pleased that the FSH Society is also taking the initiative to fund this type of research.

Read more about this study, and if you have the opportunity, participate.
