Course: Embryo biopsy workshop

27 July 2019 by Prof Joyce Harper

The programme will provide embryologists with a comprehensive knowledge and understanding of embryo biopsy.  As well as lectures, the course will include hands on practicals and demonstrations of cleavage stage and blastocyst biopsy. During the two days, delegates will not become competent at these techniques but will have enough hands on to go away and practice in their own laboratory setting.  The workshop will also allow scientists to discuss the technology with their peers and with experts in the field.  Delegates will be given copies of the powerpoint presentations.
