Forskning

En viktig grundpelare i Stockholm IVFs verksamhet är anknytningen till forskningen.
Alla våra läkare och embryologer är antingen disputerade (har erhållit Med Dr examen) inom Reproduktionsmedicin eller bedriver doktorandarbete mot Med Dr examen. Våra medarbetare vid Stockholm IVF producerar enskilt betydligt fler forskningsartiklar än vad övriga 7 privata IVF kliniker i Sverige gör. Detta gör att vi håller oss vid den internationella forskningsfronten inom ett flertal fält. Vi har forsknings samarbete med IVF-enheterna vid internationella ledande kliniker såsom vid Harvard Medical School, Yale University, Cleveland Clinic och Tokyo University.
