The Center of Advanced European Studies and Research (caesar) is a research center for neurosciences. Caesar’s research is interdisciplinary, with scientists from the neurosciences, cell biology, biochemistry, and biophysics working together on the topics of cellular signal processing and the neural foundations of animal behavior. Caesar hosts state-of-the-art research facilities, and its scientists employ kinetic methods as well as methods from the fields of microscopy, spectroscopy, and the behavioral sciences.

Chasing infertility (in German language)

Endocrine disruptors impair human sperm function

A plethora of endocrine-disrupting chemicals interfere with human sperm function in a way that may have a negative impact on fertilization. These are the findings of a German - Danish team of researchers from the Center of Advanced European Studies and Research in Bonn, Germany, and the University Department of Growth and Reproduction, Rigshospitalet, Copenhagen, Denmark. The work, which is published in EMBO reports, suggests that endocrine disruptors may contribute to widespread fertility problems in the Western world in a way that hitherto has not been recognized.
