Currently one in six couples will need some assistance to conceive, and are turning to In Vitro Fertilisation (IVF) for help.
Dr Deirdre Zander-Fox is Scientific Director at Repromed and Visiting Research Fellow at the University of Adelaide. Her research currently focuses on improving clinical IVF laboratory technology that will directly benefit infertile patients. This includes improving embryo freezing survival as well as the implementation of screening of embryo culture media to find the best embryo for transfer and thus improve pregnancy rates.
Dr Zander-Fox’s research focuses not only on increasing pregnancy rates after assisted reproductive technology but also on making sure that the children born from this technology are healthy for life.
