Outline

This PhD project will tackle two important challenges in In-Vitro Fertilization (IVF) and it is an exciting academia-industry collaboration of the Cardiff School of Mathematics with the School of Biosciences and with the London Women’s Clinic Wales (LWC).

LWC are also co-funding the project. The two challenges to tackle are:

  1. selecting the best embryo
  2. optimal embryo storage and management.

The first challenge involves data extraction and statistical modelling and the second challenge involves modelling the heat distribution in thawing embryos after their cryopreservation.
