Dr. Ginsberg leads a research team that has developed fertility preservation options for children who may experience impaired fertility or fertility loss after cancer chemotherapy or radiation. The goal of her research is to offer families fertility preservation options so reproductive choices are available to children after cancer treatment.

Along with her colleagues, Dr. Ginsberg offers families of children with cancer fertility preservation options that range from sperm banking and egg freezing to ovarian and testicular tissue freezing. Ovarian and testicular tissue freezing are experimental protocols that are currently being studied as an alternative to traditional sperm and egg banking.
