How do we come to be? The very first stages of life are complex and understanding just how we go from two cells to a fully formed person can open many avenues to understanding diseases. Join us for two enlightening talks on the reproductive system. First Dr Barbara Guinn gives a talk on endometriosis and the genetic causes for the disease. Then Professor Roger Sturmey takes us on the amazing journey of what makes an embryo an embryo and how this can help us understand the earliest stages of development. 

Does endometriosis run in families?

Dr Barbara Guinn (Reader in Biomedical Sciences)
Endometriosis affects 1 in 10 women but little is know what causes it. To try to understand why some people develop endometriosis we want to investigate the genetic alterations that cause it in families.

Probiotics Beyond the Gut

Georgios Efthimiou (Lecturer in Microbiology)
Can we use probiotics for skincare, fighting urogenital infections or event tumors?

When is an embryo not an embryo? (Cancelled)

Roger Sturmey (Professor of Reproductive Medicine)
