Interview: Gregory S. Kopf, PhD
Associate vice chancellor for research administration
University of Kansas Medical Center



The idea for a male contraceptive pill has been around for a while, but so far, nothing has proven as safe and effective as “the pill” for women. But there has been progress.

Sound Medicine’s Dr. Steve Bogdewic will speak with researcher Gregory Kopf, PhD, about his work on gamendazole, a drug that interrupts sperm maturation, rendering it nonfunctional.

Dr. Kopf is associate vice chancellor for research administration at the University of Kansas.
