CCRM offers sperm freezing for men age 50 and under who are interested in preserving their fertility.
The Male Biological Clock
Unlike women who are born with all of their eggs, men continuously produce new sperm throughout adulthood. But like their female counterparts, men do have biological clocks!
Studies have found that men who are age 45 and older, are at-risk of new genetic mutations and other abnormalities in their sperm, which greatly increases the risk of genetic disorders and childhood health risks.

CCRM Research on Advanced Paternal Age
CCRM is proud of our groundbreaking study on advanced paternal age and its impact on health risks to children. For the first time, CCRM scientists have been able to identify the mutations in sperm that predispose children to neurodevelopmental disorders, such as autism. Ongoing research at CCRM is investigating how understanding the mechanisms of these advanced paternal age risks will hopefully lead to future healthy offspring.
