Advances in assisted reproduction technologies

Book Announcement

Bentham Science Publishers

The book “Advances in Assisted Reproduction Technologies” captures the current and recent advances in assisted reproduction technology in humans and livestock in an easy and comprehensive way for the non-expert and the junior embryologists through simplifying each ART tool by providing definition and explanation, and how the methods are practiced and how to overcome troubleshooting, and showing the ARTs uses and significance.

Twenty authors from three continents, Europe, Asia, and Africa illustrated the state-of-the-art technologies to improve reproduction in human beings and livestock. The contents are supported with sixty-four figures and eleven tables to show the information in an easy and comprehensive way for the reader.

The book “Advances in Assisted Reproduction Technologies” will be an ideal reference for junior embryologists as it provides take-home messages for the current and recent ARTs. It contains ten chapters with a detailed explanation of normal reproductive physiology, male ARTs such as sperm retrieval and freezing, female ARTs such as oocyte activation, and cryopreservation, and finally, embryo ARTs that include assisted hatching and cloning techniques.


About the editor:

Dr. Islam M. Saadeldin obtained his Ph.D. degree from the Seoul National University, South Korea. He worked as a postdoctoral researcher at Seoul National University, a visiting scholar at Niigata University, Japan, and an associate professor at King Saud University, Saudi Arabia. Currently, he is a research professor at Chungnam National University, South Korea. He has a patent of invention regarding bovine embryo transgenesis through piggyBac transposons and he authored more than 160 research papers, reviews, and book chapters covering the fields of advanced reproductive biotechnology such as somatic cell nuclear transfer (SCNT), transgenesis, adult and embryonic stem cells, as well as elucidating the roles of extracellular vesicles in embryo communication and the embryonic-maternal crosstalk. His current research focuses on developing CRISPR/Cas9 engineered extracellular vesicles for improving embryo implantation and pregnancy of cloned and transgenic animals. He has been awarded several national and international prizes, such as the Egyptian State Prize, Shoman Prize, Almarai Prize, Misr Elkheir prize, The Interstellar Initiative for young investigators, the International Embryo Technology Society (IETS) Early Career Achievement Award, and AUA Scholar Award.
