The Department of Growth and Reproduction, located at Rigshospitalet in Copenhagen, Denmark, is a University Hospital Unit with multidisciplinary research. Here treatment of patients goes hand in hand with science.

We take care of patients with growth disorders, precocious or delayed puberty, genetic diseases affecting steroidogenesis, and men with poor semen quality or low testosterone levels.

Scientific questions raised in the outpatient clinic are directly translated into research projects within the department. Physicians, molecular and human biologists, biotechnicians, statisticians,† epidemiologists, and chemists carry out research projects involving often large population cohorts.

The departmentís team works closely with a number of other departments from within and outside of the Copenhagen University Hospital in research and patient care.




Department of Growth and Reproduction has been reappointed as a Global Excellence Centre - in health
