One day hands on Vitrification workshop

Embryology and PGD Academy

15 April 2015

| | | |

22nd April 2015
To be held at University College London

This workshop is linked to the embryo biopsy workshop being held on 23rd / 24th April 2015

Aims of the Course

The programme will provide embryologists with a comprehensive knowledge and understanding of vitrification. As well as lectures, the course will include hands on practicals and demonstrations. During the one-day, delegates will not become competent at vitrification 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. As well as the lectures, additional information will be given in the form of copies of the powerpoint presentations and a detailed workshop manual. This workshop will be limited to 15 delegates. Alpesh Doshi and Walid Malouf are approved Cryotech instructors.

Continued Professional Development Credits

The workshop has been awarded 7 credits from the Royal College of Pathologists.


The early bird fee for the embryo biopsy workshop only is £500.00. Early bird registration closes 1st April. Fees then increase to £600.00. The workshop includes lunch.
