Janet (Hoi Chi) Kwan

Research Assistant in Ovary Tissue Culture

  • PI group: Prof Suzannah Williams

I am actively involved in the Rhino Fertility Project, where we focus on developing novel techniques to culture rhino ovarian tissues and generate viable oocytes in vitro. With only two female Northern White Rhinos remaining on Earth, the urgency of this project cannot be overstated. We are leveraging Southern White Rhino ovarian tissue in our research efforts, as we work towards saving the Northern White Rhino from the brink of extinction.

I hold a Master's degree in Clinical Embryology and Assisted Reproduction Technology from the University of Leeds. This project allows me to merge my passion for reproductive science with the profound purpose of conserving the critically endangered Northern White Rhino.
