Toronto girls want to rethink male contraception


The idea of ​​birth control for men isn’t new, but two Toronto teenage girls want to make their mark. With the Contrall project, Diba Dindoust, a 17-year-old entrepreneur and her associates are looking into the development of the non-hormonal male contraceptive pill.

The group presented the results of their research at Collision, a conference on science and technological innovation which took place in Toronto last week.

At the microphone of Isabelle Ménard, Diba Dindoust reveals that the project was born from her passion for the use of artificial intelligence in biotechnology. She now wants to tackle the side effects of contraceptive methods already used.

Several teams of researchers are currently developing molecules for male contraception.
