Cryobiology in Assisted Reproductive Technology

Third-cycle level | 1.5 credits (HEC) | Course code: H5F3089

Course description

The aim of the course is to instruct the participants in human and mouse reproductive biology with focus on cryopreservation technology and embryo banking, as well as to give them practical experience through practical demonstrations in cryopreservation of gametes and embryos in IVF technology. To provide understanding of principles of cryobiology and components of culture systems used in assisted reproduction technology (ART). Thus the student can evaluate, troubleshoot and improve existing technology
