Teresa Vilanova Perez
I joined the Nuffield Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology 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 a Biotechnology undergraduate degree at the University of Valencia and an MSc degree in Biotechnology of Human Assisted Reproduction and Embryology (IVI Institute). 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).
