Guy's and St Thomas' NHS Foundation Trust has offered preimplantation genetic diagnosis (PGD) since 1997 and is one of the most successful in Europe, with more than 800 babies born free from genetic diseases following PGD for monegenic conditions or chromosome rearrangements.

'Preimplantation Genetic Diagnosis: The Who, the What, the Why and the How' includes talks from Clinical Genetics, Reproductive Medicine, Embryology and Genetics Laboratories to share our multidisciplinary experience, followed by interactive workshops on complex issues.

This course is for those considering establishing a PGD service and/or who wish to broaden their experience. It will cover:

  • Benefits of a multidisciplinary approach

  • How to optimise reproductive care for PGD patients

  • How to deal with complex issues

  • How to implement a patient centred comprehensive pathway

  • Benefits of targeted testing

  • Understanding the facts and fiction of PGS

  • Trophectoderm biopsy, vitrification and warmed embryo transfers for all

  • Guy's WISE approach
