Female Sexual Dysfunction Expert Panel

The FSD Expert Panel is a community of internationally recognized scientists, academicians and medical practitioners who are helping us develop and optimize bremelanotide for hypoactive sexual desire disorder (HSDD). These female sexual dysfunction experts are dedicated to improving female sexual health, and share in our vision of addressing the significant unmet medical needs of patients. Importantly, their insights and experience also help us understand the educational needs of patients and healthcare providers in raising awareness of HSDD and encouraging productive dialogue between patients and physicians to assist in recognition, diagnosis and therapeutic interventions, both medical and non-medical.
