The Future of Fertility
Research is developing new possibilities to have babies later in life, combining genomes in novel ways, correcting abnormalities inside and outside of the womb and starts to understand the very early stages of embryology. New developments will be discussed and experts from Brunel University London will present their pioneering work in genomic engineering, gene therapy in the womb and modelling embryology in culture.
