"We are definitely making progress," says Kate Waimey Timmerman, program director for the Oncofertility Consortium, a national initiative based at Northwestern University that encourages doctors to consider patients' fertility before launching cancer treatment. "We are getting the message out there.

"We merged micro imaging with video conferencing, and this allows scientists in (the Oncofertility Consortium) to contact a researcher in countries like Austria or Brussels," said Kate Timmerman, program director for the Oncofertility Consortium, which partnered with NUIT to develop the software.
The Consortium began using iExperiment last year to fulfill the need to connect the large oncofertility community and speed the pace of research on a global scale, Timmerman said.
"Distance is a barrier to discussions around the country and around the world," Timmerman said. "With video sharing, we can actually share micro imaging and talk about the cells on the screen they're investigating as it's evolving."
Three years ago, the Oncofertility Consortium approached NUIT to develop a suite of programs to facilitate research within the field. NUIT included video recording capabilities among other features, though the lab has not used the recordings much yet, Timmerman said.
The Journal of Adolescent and Young Adult Oncology will be publishing a paper expanding upon the potential for other collaborative projects in the sciences to use Northwestern's unique technology, Timmerman said.
"It's so important to share and to discuss (scientific) information. If you don't have discussion, you progress much slower," said MariliaCordeiro, a PhD student with two years of experience working in the lab. "If you can share with the other side of the world, you can get even better."
Timmerman said she has already seen increased discussion between researchers, basic scientists and other professionals due to the iExperiment program, demonstrating the need within the discipline of oncofertility.
"I think that the size of our field is why there's such a big need," Timmerman said.
