About Mats Brännström

Researchfield: Female reproductive health; translational and clinical research

Current research

The main goal is to improve diagnostics, treatment and postoperative care
for a number of common female health issues by performing experimental,
clinical and epidemiological studies.

Main topics:

  1. Ovulation mechanisms
  2. Effects of prophylactic oophorectomy
  3. Uterus transplantation
  4. Bioengineered uterus and ovary
  5. Ovarian cryopreservation. 
     

Background
In Sweden alone there are approximately 2,000–3,000 women who are childless because of an dysfunctional or missing uterus.

After careful planning nine women have recieved a new uterus from transplantation. In September 2014, the first transplanted woman delivered a baby – a healthy and normally developed boy.
