L’utilité de ce genre d’institutions est incontestable. Car le monde moderne est sans cesse confronté à des innovations, médicales ou autres, qui s’appliquent à l’homme ou à son environnement proche. Ce lieu est donc nécessaire pour préparer la matière intellectuelle qui sera ensuite transférée aux citoyens afin que ceux- ci puissent se prononcer quant à la légitimité de ces innovations.

The goal of this research project is to contribute to the theories of social translation of medical/reproductive technologies by investigating translation of social egg freezing in urban India as a case study.



My research is situated in an Indian context characterized by fertility clinics’ commercial interest, the recent surge in the promotion and use of oocyte cryopreservation for non-medical reasons, the loosely regulated practice of obstetricians and IVF experts, and the lack of scholarly literature on social egg freezing. Health care providers play a critical role in the translation and uptake of novel medical/reproductive technologies in India. In the absence of a clear regulatory framework or guidance from Indian professional bodies, health care professionals are left to form their own opinion and risk being biased by the potential for personal financial gain. Hence, it is important to investigate their knowledge and personal and professional opinions about the utility and scope of social egg freezing in Indian context, and their reflections on the ethical and social implications, which is the starting point for my research project.
