Project: Cisplatin is a common and effective treatment for various tumors; though not without side effects. One of which is prolonged infertility in male patients. The mechanisms of this toxicity are not fully understood, and a critical need exists to determine the biology involved so that patients might maintain fertility while still achieving effective tumor elimination. It is known that exposure to cisplatin induces widespread germ cell apoptosis; however, this well characterized cell death does account for the protracted period of infertility. My research examines the possible implications of cisplatin-induced damage to spermatogonial stem cells and Sertoli cells in patient infertility.
