Teresa Vilanova Perez

DPhil Student

I joined the Nuffield Department of Women's and Reproductive Health in October 2017 to study for a DPhil under the guidance of Dr Kevin Coward at Winchester House, Oxford Science Park. My research focuses on utilising exosomes as a platform for the delivery of compounds into gametes as an alternative to non-biodegradable-based technologies for reproductive purposes such as introducing essential molecules to improve and restore fertility-associated problems within the male context.

Prior to my DPhil I have completed an MSc (Hons) in Biotechnology of Human Assisted Reproduction and Embryology (IVI Institute) and a  Biotechnology undergraduate degree at the University of Valencia. After my degrees, I participated in the fertility preservation programme for prepubertal boys with cancer at Hospital La Fe (Institute of Sanitary Research, IIS La Fe, Valencia) leaded by Prof. Antonio Pellicer

I am the Trainee Representative of the British Andrology Society, the joint partner of the Student committee of the NDWRH, and also a member of the European Society of Human Reproduction (ESHRE) the Society of Fertility and Reproduction (SRF) and the Society of Spanish Researchers in United Kingdom (SRUK).
