Research Techniques and Methods in Assisted Reproduction Technology

With respect to worldwide recognition and increased demands for ART services, high quality research and key publications are required to develop these technologies in developing countries where research has remained neglected or ranked low on national research priorities. In an attempt to address these challenges, this course has been developed to introduce physicians, residents/fellows and biomedical scientists interested in ARTs to various routinely used laboratory techniques and relevant research methods in assisted reproduction and embryology.

The course will consider the different stages in the entire process of research, from study design through to publication, including literature review, hypothesis formulation, ethical approval, informed consent, study design, study registration, statistical power, data handling, statistical analysis, manuscript preparation, manuscript submission, and handling reviewers’ criticisms and editorial decisions.

Course Duration: An intensive five-day laboratory and lecture-based course.

Course Package Fee: The course fee is $400.

CME Credits: 35.0
