About

What is the NYRA

The Network for Young Researchers in Andrology (previously International Network for Young Researchers in Male Fertility)  was founded in April 2006 during the 14th European Testis Workshop in Bavaria, Germany, to assist young scientists in testis research in achieving their highest potential as a researcher, and to stimulate good and efficient science in the field. During the 15th NYRA meeting in Caux, Switzerland, NYRA has officially become the young arm of the European Academy of Andrology (EAA). We hope many great opportunities for the young andrology community will result from joining our forces.

Our group is committed to establishing global networks between young (early stage) scientists in testicular research and promoting cooperation and mutual exchange of methodologies and expertise. Therefore, we provide a more informal way of communication than the usual congresses and meetings with this homepage including a forum to request help or information concerning technical aspects of methodologies used in testicular science, but also to discuss theoretical topics.
