Announced for the first time in 2009, GFI is dedicated to transforming innovative translational fertility research projects at academic centers into concrete health solutions to improve the outcomes of assisted reproductive technologies (ART).  In the last three years, around 400 applications to GFI were received from over 40 countries around the world.   As announced at this year's annual meeting of the European Society of Human Reproduction and Embryology (ESHRE) the GFI program has been expanded to €4 million for 2012/2013.

"The purpose of the GFI is to identify new medical approaches in fertility, a key therapeutic area for Research and Development at EMD Serono," said Dr. Thorsten Eickenhorst, Senior Vice President and Chief Medical Officer at EMD Serono. "By leveraging strong collaboration across industry and academia, we can fuel creativity in science and accelerate innovation in medicine that may one day make a difference in the lives of patients."

In 2012, nine winning projects were announced during ESHRE:

  • Edson Borges Jr. (Brazil): Non-invasive prediction of embryo implantation potential and culture media
  • Angelika Daser (Germany): Direct counting of chromatids in polar bodies
  • Ellen Greenblatt (Canada): Validation of endometrial receptivity biomarkers predictive of success '/>"/>
