Course content

We have a large infertility research group based at Queen's Medical Centre (QMC) and work with the large animal facility at the University's Sutton Bonington Campus.

Studies of ovarian development using mono-ovulatory species have led to physiological culture systems, gonadotrophin suppression models and cortical autografts (developed to restore fertility) to advance understanding of folliculogenesis at cellular and molecular levels (supported by Medical Research Council (MRC), Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC) and industry).
