About the Book

This Textbook of Clinical Embryology is edited by Kevin Coward and Dagan wells. This First Edition of Textbook of Clinical Embryology  is written due to an inspiration from postgraduate degree program at the University of Oxford.

The success of Assisted Reproductive Technology is critically dependent upon the use of well optimized protocols, based upon sound scientific reasoning, empirical observations and evidence of clinical efficacy. Recently, the treatment of infertility has experienced a revolution, with the routine adoption of increasingly specialized molecular biological techniques and advanced methods for the manipulation of gametes and embryos. 


– Guides students through the multidisciplinary syllabus essential to ART laboratory practice, from basic culture techniques and micro-manipulation to laboratory management and quality assurance, and from endocrinology to molecular biology and research methods.
– Written for all levels of IVF practitioners, reproductive biologists and technologists involved in human reproductive science.
– Used as a reference manual for all IVF labs and as a textbook by undergraduates, advanced students, scientists and professionals involved in gamete, embryo or stem cell biology.
