6 Mar 2024
Wednesday 6th March 2024, at 8pm
Fertility Tests for Men with Professor Sheryl Homa, clinical specialist in male fertility
Professor Sheryl Homa PhD ARCS FIBMS is a Scientific Director of Andrology Solutions and an HCPC registered Clinical Scientist with a special interest in male fertility. She obtained her degrees in Biochemistry at Imperial College of Science and Technology and the Middlesex Hospital Medical School. She spent a large part of her career as an academic research scientist in the field of oocyte maturation, funded by the National Institutes of Health in the USA. For many years, she served as Scientific Director of several fertility clinics in the UK, working in both the public and private sectors. During this time, she became aware that male fertility is considerably marginalised and as a result, opened Andrology Solutions in 2007, the first and only HFEA licensed clinic of its kind, dedicated to male infertility.
She has collaborated on many research projects and is the author of numerous scientific articles, abstracts and book chapters in the fertility field. Her studies include investigating calcium signalling in sperm and, more recently, the role of oxidative stress and infection on sperm quality. Sheryl has been responsible for introducing and CE marking novel state-of-the-art testing for male infertility, including a chemiluminescence assay for measuring seminal reactive oxygen species. Currently, Sheryl is an honorary Professor in Biosciences at the University of Kent and consultant clinical lead for Andrology at The Doctors Laboratory.

Having the male fertility support group available to me has been invaluable – whether you join just to listen, or to share your story and experiences. It’s a great place to get answers, feel that you are not alone in your fertility journey, and it always provides a positive boost after each session. It’s become an essential part of my monthly routine!
