Preimplantation Embryology Series

Back to Life sciences

This important three-volume series, focuses on preimplantation embryology in humans and other mammals. The series looks at the early events of reproduction and development from the time of fertilisation through to the time when the embryo implants itself in the uterus; this is a critical period of development. The developmental plasticity of the early embryo during this period provides a unique opportunity for its experimental study and manipulation in vitro. For example, many of the techniques now used routinely in IVF treatment and for producing test-tube babies have been pioneered on domestic animals. In addition, such experiments have significantly advanced our understanding of early embryology and development. The three volumes will concentrate on different aspects of this topic: volume 1, on experimental preimplantation embryology, will be written by Dr Brian Dale who is Director of Research at the Stazione Zoologica di Napoli; volume 2, on preimplantation embryology in large domestic species, will be written by Professor Robert Godke, Department of Animal Science, Louisiana State University; volume 3, on preimplantion embryology in the human, will be written by Dr Jacques Cohen, Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology, the Center for Reproductive Medicine and Infertility, Cornell University Medical College.
