Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) for Ovarian Rejuvenation 
Elsewhere in this issue of the VOICE we report on the IRB approval of CHR’s PRP study for the purpose of Ovarian Rejuvenation in women with POF/POI. We also in last month’s VOICE noted that PRP has been in clinical use in Europe and in a number of centers in the U.S., though without any published evidence of success.
How to make a baby (in a lab) - Nassim Assefi and Brian A. Levine [Clients or training video]. 
Infertility affects 1 in 8 couples worldwide. But in the last 40 years, more than 5 million babies have been born using in vitro fertilization (IVF). How does it work? Nassim Assefi and Brian A. Levine detail the science behind making a baby in a lab
Evaluation of kisspeptin-54 for egg maturation 
In this episode, Waljit Dhillo discusses the results from a small clinical trial that evaluated use of the fertility hormone kisspeptin-54 for egg maturation in IVF. Dhillo and colleagues report that kisspeptin-54 treatment resulted in mature eggs that were successfully fertilized and transferred, with pregnancy in 23% of patients.
The film explains what it means to be a balanced translocation carrier and the problems with fertility that may be experienced. IVF with translocation preimplantation genetic diagnosis (translocation PGD) is suggested as a way to improve the chances of a successful pregnancy and a healthy baby.
Rheotaxis facilitates upstream navigation of mammalian sperm cells 
Video 2. Human sperm cells swimming in a low-viscosity fluid (3 mPa·s) near the wall of a planar channel.The video shows that, at low viscosity, the flagellar beat of a human sperm cell typically exhibits a considerable chiral component. This follows from the fact that the flagellum never appears as a straight line (in contrast to bull sperms at same viscosity, compare Video 4). Scale bar 20 μ:m.
What does real scientific work look like? As neuroscientist Stuart Firestein jokes: It looks a lot less like the scientific method and a lot more like "farting around … in the dark." In this witty talk, Firestein gets to the heart of science as it is really practiced and suggests that we should value what we don’t know - or “high-quality ignorance” - just as much as what we know.
On November 19th 2012, the Academy of Medical Sciences and ScienceLondon joined forces to present the Great Mitochondria Transfer Debate, a public discussion on the science and ethics of mitochondria transfer.
TEDxNorthwesternU: Teresa K. Woodruff, PhD - Fertility after Cancer 
Ten years ago the phrase 'families after cancer' would have been an oxymoron if thought of at all. Today, due to the impressive rise in cancer survivors, this is not only a well-used phrase, but also an issue that needs further exploration. To address this concern we created the Oncofertility Consortium, a national, interdisciplinary initiative and uncommon team, to explore and expand the reproductive options for young cancer patients - men, wome
In this prophetic 2003 talk - just days before Dolly the sheep was stuffed - biotech ethicist Gregory Stock looked forward to new, more meaningful (and controversial) technologies, like customizable babies, whose adoption might drive human evolution.

At TEDxMaastricht, Daniel Kraft offers a fast-paced look at the next few years of innovations in medicine, powered by new tools, tests and apps that bring diagnostic information right to the patient's bedside.
In recent years, partly due to the development of more advanced culture media, certain IVF-clinics have started to prolong the culture to the blastocyst stage in order to increase the possibilities to choose optimal embryos for replacement.
IVF Video Podcast. - From fertilization to the 8-cell stage 
Morphologically, the fertilization is confirmed by the appearance of two so-called pronuclei inside the oocyte and two polar bodies on the egg surface. The protrusion of the second polar body occurs shortly after the fertilization. The pronuclei appr
