Objective: To provide an overview of the history of the North American Testis Workshop (NATW), of its relationship to the American Society of Andrology (ASA), and of the publications that resulted from the first 25 workshops. Methods: The collection of volumes and journal articles that relate to the NATW was searched. Discussion and Conclusion: During the first twenty-five meetings of the NATW, a remarkable number of breakthroughs regarding every aspect of the testis were presented. We anticipate that with the acceleration of new genetic, epigenetic, and molecular knowledge of the functions of testicular cells, we will continue to learn about the discovery of new and clinically important aspects of testicular function during the next twenty-five NATWs.
