Donating frozen embryos to research


Our embryology teams at CARE Fertility undertake research programmes licensed by the HFEA and work with scientists around the world striving towards treatment solutions for the future. One of the biggest challenge for researchers in this field is the availability of embryos.

If you feel that you would like to help by donating your embryos, we’d be happy to answer any questions you have and guide you through the process. 

Please speak to a member of the team at your CARE clinic if you would like to be guided through this process.

Before donating your embryos to research, it is very important that you read the full patient information to allow you to fully consider your decision.
