Dr. Brasile is involved in research in several areas, including drugs used in IVF/ART and testing in vanishing twin pregnancies.

Recent research support includes:

Protocol FIN3002: "A Phase III investigator and assessor-blinded 1:1 randomized, parallel-group multicenter study to compare efficacy and safety of two r-hFSH formulations (AFOLIA pen vs. Gonal-f RFF pen) in normal ovulatory women 35 to 42 years of age undergoing in vitro fertilization (IVF)"
Finox AG, 2013-present, sub-investigator

Protocol #13-017-NPT: "Development of non-invasive prenatal diagnostic test for vanishing twin pregnancies based on fetal DNA isolated from maternal blood"
Natera, Inc., 2013-present, sub-investigator

Protocol EMR200497-001: "Exploratory, non-interventional study to identify and validate biomarkers in follicular fluid, cumulus or granulosa cells or embryo culture media for prediction of implantation and pregnancy outcome of Assisted Reproductive Technology cycle"
