About

The British Andrology Society is the professional and learned UK society for Clinical, Medical and Veterinary Andrology.

 

The Society is multi-disciplinary and draws its membership from a broad range of backgrounds encompassing a wide range of scientific disciplines including Reproductive Biology, Endocrinology, Cytology, Microbiology and Embryology alongside  clinical and laboratory Andrology and other associated fields such as clinical Urology, Gynaecology, and Veterinary Medicine.

 

As a registered charity, research and education are key to our existence with areas of interest including: spermatogenesis; semen analyses; sperm function; fertilisation; contraception; cryopreservation (sperm / fertility preservation) and improving outcomes of fertility treatment.

As the learned society for Andrology, The British Andrology Society has produced guidelines for the laboratories undertaking post-vasectomy semen analyses and the screening of sperm donors and commented on such items as the NICE guidelines and government consultation on the future of the Human Fertilisation & Embryology Authority (HFEA). We also sit on the  HFEA Professional Organisations Group to keep an active discussion of current policy.

 

Training is also a key element and the Society organises and hosts the UK ‘ESHRE Basic Semen Analysis Course‘ which is key training for all those operating in clinical Andrology to the new WHO guidelines. The British Andrology Society is also involved with the UK NEQAS quality assurance scheme in Andrology. The Society also has representatives on the Committees  of the National Gamete Donation Trust (NGDT) and the National Quality Assurance Panel in Andrology (Royal College of Pathologists).

 

The British Andrology Society is closely associated with other societies such as the Association of Biomedical Andrologists (ABA), Society for Reproduction and Fertility (SRF),  British Association  of Urological Surgeons (BAUS), British Fertility Society (BFS), Association of Clinical Embryologists (ACE) and the European Society of Human Reproduction and Endocrinology (ESHRE).
