ICSI Center

Molecular Genetics Research Laboratory for Male Infertility / Advanced Micromanipulation Research Laboratory on Mammalian Gametes


Our field of interest is to device and execute research projects in reproductive biology. The main focus is on designing and carrying out research projects on the physiology of human gametes, spermatozoa, and oocytes in order to understand their maturation and interaction. Other fields of interest are the genetic basis responsible for spermatogenesis and to explore techniques for assessment of aneuploidy of eggs and sperm. Systematically device and organize follow-up studies to investigate the wellbeing of children born from assisted reproductive technologies (ART), IVF, ICSI, and those resulting from cryopreservation. Investigate methods to enhance the efficiency of cryopreservation procedures of human eggs.
