Spotlight on Publications November 2021
We are spotlighting the work of PhD Student Lucy Caughey who was recently published in the prestigious journal Fertility and Sterility.
PhD Student Lucy Caughey’s recent systematic review was chosen for an editorial. The paper is titled “Disposition intentions of elective egg freezers toward their surplus frozen oocytes: a systematic review and meta-analysis”. Co-authors on the paper are Sarah Lensen, Katherine M. White and Michelle Peate.
The editorial is very favourable (Hershberger) – saying “In summary, the review is a major contribution to the field. The investigators synthesize disparate research by using scientifically rigorous methods to provide a comprehensive review that provides meaningful information and future direction by detailing what we know and do not know about women who electively freeze their eggs and their disposition intentions regarding surplus oocytes."
We congratulate Lucy on this great achievement.
