Conference: ACE Symposium on "Selecting the viable embryo by Morphology & its clinical Impact " by Dr Inge Errebo Agerholm at Pune, Chennai, Kolkata and Delhi

13 February 2017 by Dr Parag Nandi, PhD
ACE Symposium on "Selecting the viable embryo by Morphology & its clinical Impact " by Dr Inge Errebo Agerholm at Pune, Chennai, Kolkata and Delhi

ThemeSelecting the viable embryo by Morphology & its clinical Impact

Aim: The candidates will be able to select the appropriate embryo for transfer & cryopreservation. They will also gain insights into which embryo to discard when and why.




  • Understanding the grading criteria’s from zygote to blastocyst  stage
  • Practicality in using these grading systems
  • Limitations of selecting an embryo by morphology alone.
  • Clinical impact of the selection criteria by morphology
  •  Panel discussion will target   practical dilemmas in selecting/deselecting the embryos in our day to day routine.
  • Encourage audience interaction with the experts.

Researchers have successfully turned stem cells into 'totipotent' cells, with characteristics resembling those of fertilised eggs.

This is the first time that stem cells with the capacity to generate all cell types have been created. The researchers say it could broaden the range of tissues that can be generated from stem cells, paving the way for new applications in regenerative medicine.
