Much like our oceans, the world of clinical and biomedical research is vast, fast-paced, dynamic and full of unanswered questions. In 2017, numerous advances were made that could change the tide of efforts to fight disease.

Nature Reviews Urologyis proud to present the Men's Health Collection in partnership with the Movember Foundation. The issue of men's health has increased in the public awareness in recent years and emerged as a new discipline that is responsible for a gender-specific approach to health-services delivery, government policy, research, and advocacy. An improved focus on men's health is needed as the average life expectancy for men is lower than for women in almost all countries and social influences mean that, often, men do not see their health as a priority. Charities have had a major role in promoting men's health as an issue for society in general, as well as providing support and funding for research. This special collection of articles by key opinion leaders highlights issues that are important to men, their families, and their physicians, and provides a resource for these interested parties in the areas of prostate cancer, BPH, fertility, and testosterone deficiency. The male-health paradigm and the influence of charities in championing this important cause are also discussed. All content has been chosen by the editors ofNature Reviews Urology.

In the developed world, birth rates are plummeting and, increasingly, individuals are delaying reproduction. At the same time, rising rates of obesity and cancer are affecting fertility (both by virtue of the disease burden and the effects of treatment). A number of factors have been shown to affect fertility in men and women, including oxidative stress, hormonal and metabolic dysfunction and physical deformity. This joint Nature Reviews UrologyandNature Reviews Endocrinologycollection on fertility and reproduction contains Reviews and commentaries written by key opinion leaders on a range of topics pertinent to the subject, from the molecular mechanisms regulating fertility and reproduction to the preservation of fertility and treatment of infertility in both men and women.
