3 September 2014 - 19 September 2014
University College London (UCL)'s Centre for Preimplantation Genetic Diagnosis has been delivering hands-on training in IVF and PGD techniques since 1996, training hundreds of embryologists and geneticists in embryology, embryo biopsy and diagnostic procedures.
UCL is pleased to announce the launch of the Embryology and PGD Academy. The Academy aims to deliver global hands-on training in embryology and PGD at both advanced and basic levels. As well as running workshops at University College London, we can run workshops in any country.
The Academy's next three workshops in London are:
Vitrification, 3 September – covers all stages of vitrification
Embryo Biopsy, 4-5 September – covers polar body, cleavage and blastocyst biopsy
PGD Diagnostic Techniques, 15-19 September – covers the diagnostic techniques used in PGD
All workshops will take place at UCL, and carry CPD points from the Royal College of Pathologists.
The hands-on workshops complement the two Masters programmes run by UCL's Dr Joyce Harper - Prenatal Genetics and Fetal Medicine (running since 1996) and Reproductive Science and Women's Health (running since 2009).
