Letter from the Co-Founder
MICHELLE DIPP, M.D., PH.D
A woman’s biology is extraordinary. Not only is it staggeringly complex, but it is also resilient and unquestionably powerful.
Misinformation about female fertility has been ingrained in our psyche. We were told that women have a set number of eggs from birth and a fleeting window of time to have a child. We were told that if you can’t have a baby naturally, it must be your fault, and that if your body doesn’t work the way you wanted it to, it must be defective.
At OvaScience, we say your biology is more powerful than you know. Inside every woman are immature egg cells found in the protective ovarian lining – a discovery that is nothing short of a breakthrough. These egg precursor (EggPCSM) cells are the foundation of OvaScience’s treatments, and their existence opens up extraordinary possibilities to help women improve their fertility with what already exists inside their own bodies.
Exploring the applications of EggPC cells is exciting. OvaScience is dedicated to developing much-needed treatments for the women worldwide who face fertility challenges while advocating for better options and better outcomes on behalf of patients. We are committed to pushing the fertility field forward, and reshaping how society talks – and thinks – about female fertility.
