The Fertile Years & Biochemical Pathways to Fertility
In this special two-part launch of the series, Prof Joanna Bridger & Dr Sabrina Tosi will explore The Fertile Years. This series opener offers a biological perspective of how eggs and sperm are made, the wonders of what happens when they meet at conception, how implantation occurs; and the impact age and alternative remedies have on these processes.
Dr Manos Karteris and Prof Amanda Harvey will then offer a biochemical view of the molecules, vitamins, hormones and pathways that lead to fertility, those that can be used to enhance fertility and protect the health of a developing foetus.
