Implantation and early pregnancy

To improve ART treatment success rates and learn more about the impact of the ART environment on embryonic development, we study how embryos implant in the wall of the womb.

We have shown that treatments and assessments of embryos in the ART clinic relate to their implantation success, and that the womb lining plays important roles in this process.

We are also interested in how problems during implantation can lead to faulty development of the placenta, with the hope of improving early detection of pregnancy diseases.
