Prof. Michael Grynberg is an obstetrician gynecologist specialized in reproductive medicine. He completed his PhD on the regulation of follicular growth and AMH production. In 2014, he became a Professor of Reproductive Medicine and head of the Department of Reproductive Medicine & Fertility Preservation at the University Hopital Jean Verdier, Bondy, France. Since mid-2017, he has been head of the Department of Reproductive Medicine & Fertility Preservation at the University Hopital Antoine Beclere, Clamart, France. In addition, he is an active member of the basic research unit INSERM U 1133, Universite Paris Diderot-CNRS UMR 8251. His research interests initially included the assessment of ovarian follicular status and the regulation of anti-Mullerian hormone, a key peptide in ovarian function. Over the past 5 years, he has expanded his field of research to include onco-fertility. Indeed, female fertility preservation has recently emerged in the field of reproductive medicine. Michael Grynberg is a pioneer on female fertility preservation in France and has recently become the President of the French Society of Onco-Fertililty. He is also deputy of the fertility preservation special interest group of the ESHRE and Head of the Fertility Department at the French College of Obstetrician Gynecologists.

He has authored 6 books, nearly 500 articles and book chapters, and holds 2 US patents (in diagnostics and therapeutics). Among his many contributions to the field, he co-pioneered the Microsurgical Epididymal Sperm Aspiration (MESA) technique; discovered that congenital absence of the vas deferens is a mild, genital form of cystic fibrosis; reported on microdeletions on the Yq chromosome responsible for severe oligospermia; introduced methods for assessing oocyte quality using genetic analysis of cumulus cells; and identified causes of oocyte aging as secondary to follicular and cumulus cell hypoxia. His main research interests include: Improving the efficiency of ART, ovarian aging, fertility preservation strategies for cancer and non-medical conditions, ovarian and testicular tissue vitrification, and methods for freeze-drying gametes and stem cells.
