    SAN FRANCISCO, CALIFORNIA — The rapid evolution of assisted reproductive technologies such as egg donation and commercial surrogacy has created an urgent need for accurate information among policy makers and the public about risks and possibilities now open to infertile couples and to the women who serve as egg donors and surrogates. This project will allow the Center for Genetics and Society - working with Our Bodies Ourselves - to compile and rate the quality of existing evidence, identify knowledge gaps, convene experts, and develop strategies to reach all of those involved (physicians, infertile couples, egg donors, and commercial surrogates) with the relevant information about assisted reproductive technologies.
