PhD studentship in canine embryology-RVC

This 3-year PhD studentship project aims to refine our previous and recent ground-breaking work on dog IVM in order to define the fundamental processes that regulate canine oocyte nuclear and cytoplasmic maturation and the critical processes that affect the oocyte during the post-ovulatory (oviductal) period. Further, the project will optimize key steps in canine ART to enable the techniques to be used routinely within our wider and future translational programs.
