MCI’s Lemonade Stand series tackles ethics of male contraceptives, clinical trials, and more



The Male Contraceptive Initiative launched their “Lemonade Stand” discussion series as a way to bring the male contraception research community together in a virtual space during the COVID-19 pandemic, “making lemons into lemonade by connecting and sharing.”


So far, the webinar series has covered a variety of emerging questions from the field to drive the advancement of male contraception from clinical trials to market, including the regulatory process, manufacturing process, and multipurpose prevention technologies (MPTs). Stay tuned for ongoing conversations.
