SEPTEMBER 05, 2014
Investigating Clinically Relevant Mechanisms and Consequences of Chromosomal Instability During Pre-Implantation Development Via Dynamic Imaging Analysis of Embryo Behavior
Shawn L. Chavez, Ph.D.
Assistant Scientist, Division of Reproductive & Developmental Sciences, Oregon National Primate Research Center and Assistant Professor, Departments of OB/GYN and Physiology & Pharmacology, OHSU
- Develop a better understanding of the fundamental aspects of pre-implantation development with focus on timing in the human.
- Examine chromosomal instability in human embryos with methods for detection, including via time-lapse imaging and automated image analysis of human embryo behavior.
- Correlate chromosomal, epigenetic and molecular data with imaging analysis across different mammalian species.
- Elucidate the causative mechanisms underlying increased aneuploidy rates in human embryos and whether it can be detected earlier in development or with alternative biomedical optics.
