As recently as the 18th century, the prevailing notion in human embryology was pre formation: the idea that semen contains an embryo a preformed, miniature infant, or "homunculus" that simply becomes larger during development.
Currently, embryology has become an important research area for studying the genetic control of the development process (e.g. morphogens), its link to cell signalling, its importance for the study of certain diseases and mutations and in links to stem cell research.
An embryologist is a scientist that works with sperm, eggs, and embryos. This field of work is known as embryology. Embryologists can work in human or animal embryology. Animal embryologist can help with breeding programs for a zoo, re population of endangered species, and breeding of livestock. Human embryologists work with infertility programs with the goal of helping couples have a baby.
The embryologist in an in vitro fertilisation program (IVF) plays a vital role in the journey to pregnancy for a couple struggling with infertility. During the course of infertility treatments, the embryologist will be involved from the start to finish of an in vitro fertilization IVF cycle. During the testing phase before IVF treatments, the embryologists will prepare the embryology lab for infertility treatments by regulating and testing environmental conditions in the embryology laboratory including temperature, air quality, and humidity. Ordering supplies and the culture media, or liquids used to grow the embryos, is also a necessary step when preparing to start an IVF cycle.
Testing of sperm and freeing sperm samples from couples about to undergo treatment is another job of the embryologist during the testing phase Often, an embryologist will also work in the role of an andrologist, which is an individual that works with sperm.
Clinical embryology is a satisfying job. It is a pleasure to serve the patients you treat and especially to see their joy when the outcome is positive. Nevertheless, you as a profession must ensure that you are respected in your work and that you are given the appropriate professional status and salary.
India with its ever exploding population of 1.2 Bn and ticking also encounters a major problem of infertility and it is quite paradox that a country with large amount of population also has its share of infertility.
Assisted Reproductive Technologies (ARTs) which encompass procedures ranging from relatively simple Intra Uterine Insemination (IUI), IVF, ICSI, IMSI, Cryo Preservation and Vitrification.With the estimated number of clinics in India is almost 700+ and an ever increasing rate has put India on the world IVF map.
In the past 2 decades, the field of Embryology and Assisted Human Reproduction has witnessed monumental progress and expansion. The rapid advances and new discoveries in these fields are touching the sky. There is a growing gap between the enormous amount of knowledge and technology generated daily in the field and the dissemination of these to the laboratory professionals.
The technological advances in the field of ART are pushing the envelope by giving the reproductive laboratory professionals unsurpassed options to further improve the outcome of their patients.
With these thoughts in mind, the goal of the very first International Embryology Summit or IES'12 organized by the India's topmost Embryology Academy (the Embryology Academy for Research and Training or EART) and the prestigious American "Center for Reproductive Medicine or CRM"; is to share the latest know-how about the sophisticated ART techniques, best practices and equipments used and available in the world.
It will brings you an extensive 12 days long comprehensive hands on Embryology teaching and learning with 2 workshops and 6 training modules.
Each workshop module will be headed by an International Celebrity Embryologist (from Europe, United States and supported by 40 renowned Indian Embryologist), hand picked for their excellence and expertise in specific ART related technologies.
It will showcase the most innovative technology,protocols and equipments from all across the world. The scientific
program of IES12 will benefit any one either practicing or interested in the field of embryology and ART. It will emphasize education through well prepared lectures and informal discussions, daily practical demonstrations and focus on hands on practice.The participants will gain invaluable insight, practical skills and knowledge under the expert guidance and tutelage of the celebrity embryologist and ART specialists. Our Speakers are hand picked from all over the globe solely on the basis of their proven track record of unparalleled teaching skills, sterling academic contributions and rich practical experiences in this fast growing field.
