Special Issue "Clinical Embryology and Reproductive Medicine"
A special issue of Medicina (ISSN 1010-660X).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 30 September 2019.
Clinical embryology covers the field of embryology in assisted reproductive techniques and involves sperm preparation and analysis, IVF/ICSI insemination procedures, the evaluation of the produced embryos either morphologically or with the help of advanced processes such as time-lapse imaging, metabolomics, the measurement of miRNAs with computational methods, the vitrification and thawing of gametes and embryos, and other aspects such as the quality control and assurance of laboratories. Today there is a need to assess the quality of transferred embryos, while the stimulation protocols used for the production of the best quality oocytes and subsequent embryos have been optimized according to each patient. Moreover, the field of clinical embryology and reproductive medicine covers bioethical issues, since embryology involves gametes and embryos at the pre-implantation stages.
Please consider contributing to this important area of study by submitting an article to this Special Issue on the state-of-the-art research on clinical embryology and reproductive medicine currently underway. By gathering our knowledge together, we aim to gain further common insights into the issues facing this field.
Assist. Prof. George Anifandis
