Dr. Koert recently completed a year-long research position with Professor Jacky Boivin at Cardiff University in Cardiff, UK and continues to collaborate on research with the Cardiff Fertility Studies Research Group since returning to Canada.

It has been translated into 41 different languages and has been used in international research and clinical practice.
