9781441965172: 156: Oncofertility: Ethical, Legal, Social, and Medical Perspectives (Cancer Treatment and Research)

Oncofertility has emerged as a way to address potential lost or impaired fertility in cancer patients and survivors, with active biomedical research that is developing new ways to help these individuals preserve their ability to have biological children. In order to move beyond oncofertility as a science and medical technology and begin to address the ethical, legal, and social ramifications of this emerging field, we must give voice to scholars from the humanities and social sciences to engage in a multidisciplinary discussion. This book brings together a pool of experts from a variety of fields, including communication, economics, ethics, history, law, religion, and sociology, to examine the complex issues raised by recent developments in oncofertility and to offer advice from national and international perspectives as we create new technology. Given the inherent interdisciplinary nature of oncofertility, this book is not only valuable, but also necessary to cultivate a deep understanding of new issues with the eventual aim of offering proposals for addressing them. Indeed, this book will be useful for people not only within the humanities and social sciences disciplines but also for those who are confronted with cancer and the possibility of impaired fertility and the medical practitioners within oncology and reproductive medicine who are at the front lines of this emerging field.

From the Back Cover:

Oncofertility has emerged as a way to address potential lost or impaired fertility in those with a history of cancer. Active biomedical research is developing new ways to help those afflicted with cancer to preserve their ability to have biological children. Oncofertility: Ethical, Legal, Social, and Medical Perspectives moves beyond oncofertility as a science and medical technology and begins to address the social, legal, and ethical ramifications of this emerging field. Dr. Teresa K. Woodruff establishes a team of oncologists, fertility specialists, social scientists, and education and policy makers to engage in an interdisciplinary discussion on the clinical care of women who will lose their fertility due to cancer treatment. "Cancer and its treatment will often compromise fertility. Concerns relevant to reproduction remains one of the most important issues for patients. In this text renown experts discuss the spectrum of critical issues embraced by Oncofertility." - Steven T. Rosen, M.D. Series Editor

She is the immediate past Director of the Basic Science Programs for the Robert H. Lurie Comprehensive Cancer Center (2000-2007). She is the basic science Associate Editor for Fertility and Sterility (2008-present) and member of several editorial boards including Molecular Cellular Endocrinology, Journal of Molecular Endocrinology and Endocrine Reviews. She serves on the Endocrine Society council (2008-present) and the Society for the Study of Reproduction Board of Directors (2008-present). Her awards include the Distinguished Teaching Award from Northwestern University, the Endocrine Society’s Richard E. Weitzman Memorial Award, The Alumae Award from Northwestern University, and the Distinguished Women in Medicine and Science Award. She was elected a fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science in 2005. As a member of the faculty of the Undergraduate Program in Biological Sciences, Dr. Woodruff teaches graduate and undergraduate students in Systems Physiology and the medical student module on female reproduction. She also created the Oncofertility Saturday Academy (OSA) to provide science experiences to high school girls attending the Young Women’s Leadership Charter School (YWLCS). She received her PhD from Northwestern University in 1989. Dr. Woodruff has published more than 100 peer-reviewed papers as well as 40 editorials and book chapters. She is the Principal Investigator on 2 R01 NIH grants, a P01 grant and core facility, and is the PI and director of two NIH funded center grants (The Center for Reproductive Research (U54) and the Oncofertility Consortium (UL1). In 2008 she was the recipient of a prestigious W.M. Keck Foundation Medical Research award (2008). The major goals of her laboratory are to identify the mechanisms underlying ovarian follicle development, selection and recruitment and to provide new angles on ovarian disease and fertility conserving options for women. Dr. Woodruff has established a team of oncologists, fertility specialists, social scientists, and education and policy makers to translate her research to the clinical care of women who will lose their fertility due to cancer treatment. She coined the term oncofertility to describe this work, a word that is now officially recognized as a new 'slang' term in the English language. She edited the first book on this topic called Oncofertility (Springer, 2007) where the scope of the problem and current technology, clinical practice tables, procedural guidelines and patient stories are collected. Hallmarks of Woodruff career include a strong focus on ovarian biology, on interdisciplinary approaches to problems and application of the work to the human.
