A significant proportion of childhood/adolescent cancer survivors are likely to experience problems with fertility in the future. 

The proposed research project from the Centre for Gene Therapy and Regenerative Medicine at King’s College London wants to understand how fertility is affected following treatment for childhood cancer and develop methods to preserve testicular tissue. 

The researchers would like the input of current or past male patients of childhood /adolescent cancer and/or their parents/guardians to understand patient perspective and concerns which will ultimately shape their research project. 

In a one-hour online session, the proposed research will be briefly presented before participants are given the opportunity to give feedback on the research aims and engage in a wider, guided discussion with the researchers and each other about the impact of fertility problems in childhood / adolescent cancer patients. 

They are looking for current or previous patients of childhood/adolescent cancer, parents/guardians/carers of patients.
