Pre-implantation Genetic Diagnosis: Current practice and beyond

Date: 9 – 10 November 2018

Venue: Robens Suite, Guy’s Hospital, London SE1 9RT

Our centre has offered Preimplantation Genetic Diagnosis (PGD) since 1997 and is one of the most successful in Europe with more than 700 babies born free from genetic diseases following PGD for monegenic conditions or chromosome rearrangements.

Pre-implantation Genetic Diagnosis: Current practice and beyond includes talks from Clinical Genetics, Reproductive Medicine, Embryology and Genetics Laboratories to share our multidisciplinary experience, followed by interactive workshops on complex issues.

This course is for those considering establishing a PGD service and/or who wish to broaden their experience.
