Pre-implantation Genetics

Pre-implantation Genetics

Pre-implantation genetic diagnosis (PGD or PIGD) is the genetic profiling of embryos prior to implantation and sometimes even of oocytes prior to fertilization. PGD is considered… Read more

Cryobiology

Cryobiology

Cryobiology deals with life at low temperature. The word cryobiology is relatively new. Literature search indicates that cryobiology was first used in the early 1950s… Read more

Endometrial
receptivity

Endometrial
receptivity

The endometrium is the surface tissue that cover the walls of the uterus. In humans, this tissue suffers physiological and morphological modifications along the menstrual cycle… Read more

Male fertility

Male fertility

Sperm generated in the adult male gonads from a small germinal stem cell population. This gametes formation process, called spermatogenesis is initiated in the puberty although its origin is… Read more

Aging and Rejuvenation

Aging and Rejuvenation

In women, the maturation of the ovules is done strictly following a biological rhythm The genesis of the ovules begins in embryonic development with the proliferation of progenitor cells primary… Read more

Stem cells

Stem cells

The human endometrium is a highly proliferative tissue suffering several changes during each menstrual cycle and growing from 0.5 to 7-8 mm during all the reproductive life of women… Read more

Epigenetics

Epigenetics

Embryo implantation consists on the adhesion of the competent embryo to the endometrial luminal epithelium followed by the invasion of the stromal compartment underneath… Read more

Reproductive
disorders

Reproductive
disorders

Infertility affects up to 15% of couples in reproductive age in Europe. Among the different diseases that can lead to infertility, poor gamete quality plays an important role and… Read more
