Christian Cerra MBChB, BSc, MRCGP, MSc 

26th May 2023

Christian joined Herts & Essex Fertility Centre in February 2023 and is a member of the British Fertility Society (BFS) and The European Society of Human Reproduction and Embryology (ESHRE).

Christian developed his skills and knowledge in assisted reproduction working at the Liverpool Women’s Hospital, the largest reproductive medicine facility in the country, where he completed his Masters Degree in Advanced Fertility Practice.

Christian underwent training in both Obstetrics and Gynaecology and General Practice before specialising in Fertility. This combination of training experience led him to develop a truly holistic approach to patient care by understanding a broad range of health and wellbeing issues facing individuals. He is an authority on the matter and wrote a chapter on biosocial factors in sub-fertility and caring for the fertility patient as a whole. He has a specific interest in health and fertility issues in the LGBTQ+ community, and before joining us he enjoyed working as a fertility specialist in Brighton, serving its diverse community.

Christian studied medicine at the University of Manchester, where from the early stages of his career he carried out extensive research on pharmacogenetics in IVF. This exciting field, thought to be the next frontier in medicine, aims to individualise treatments based on a person’s own genetic makeup to provide safe and effective care. His research resulted in several publications in major fertility journals, and international presentations in Europe and the USA, as well as a national prize at the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists. Christian also gained a BSc in Pathology.

Christian likes to relax walking in the countryside and enjoys skiing trips to Italy and visiting his family home in Rome. Christian also has a passion for kitesurfing and loves any opportunity to get into the sea exploring new kitesurfing spots in the UK and around the world.
