European Oocyte Biology Research Innovation Training Net

Project description

Enhanced understanding of regulators of oocyte health could have broad implications

Despite tremendous advances in artificial reproductive technologies, rates of successful pregnancies and births remain low in both human and animal populations. Treatments can be expensive and insurance coverage is limited, potentially negating a person’s ability to undergo treatment or limiting the number of treatments one can afford. Enhancing success rates could have important societal and economic impact, helping more people get pregnant with less emotional and economic burden and supporting the preservation of endangered species with artificial reproduction. EUROVA plans to increase understanding of the mechanisms regulating oocyte health, fertilisation and zygote transition while training young researchers in oocyte biology. Identifying checkpoints and regulators may help in reprogramming the cell cycle for greater success.
