The aim of this workshop is to learn the practical management of ovarian tissue cryopreservation procedures.
The participants will prepare bovine ovaries (eventually human tissue) for cryopreservation and perform the cryopreservation procedure according to our protocol for human ovaries. Lectures and "hands-on” sessions are taught by the scientists and MDs involved in Fertility Preservation Program.
This is an interactive and personalized workshop, where a small number of participants (maximum two) will have a workstation equipped with all materials needed for practice and a specialized instructor.
