Purpose of the course The purpose of the course is to enable doctoral students to obtain a basic understanding of the biological processes involved in human reproduction. Experts in the field will provide with a fresh overview of clinical and pre-clinical research aiming at development of novel treatment possibilities but also discussing their current limitations.
Learning outcomes The learning outcomes of this course are that at the conclusion of this course students should be able to show a comprehensive view of key factors involved in reproductive biology and the processes involved in fertilization and implantation. Additionally, at the end of the course students will be able to perform a critical assessment of reported achievements on reproductive medicine and their current clinical possibilities and limitations.
