Programme Structure

Courses include:

  • Gonads to Gametes - This module explores the origins, development and function of the germ cells (eggs and sperm) and the gonads (ovary and testis), with a particular focus on how local (paracrine) and systemic (endocrine) signalling pathways regulate these important developmental processes from fetal life through to adulthood. 
  • Eggs to Embryos - This module starts with fertilisation. The translation of knowledge acquired from mouse-based studies of preimplantation development, to the development of IVF and complex diagnostic and therapeutic assisted reproductive technologies is investigated. 
  • Bumps to Babies - This final module identifies the main events of human pregnancy, from the perspectives of the developing embryo and fetus, the placenta and the mother.  
  • Independent Research Project
