Gustav Born Scholarship by St. Peter's College (University of Oxford)
Teresa Vilanova Perez
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 funded with a Gustav Born Scholarship from St. Peter's College. My research focuses on utilising exosomes for non-invasive compound delivery into gametes. This novel tool has the potential to be used for reproductive purposes and thus treat fertility-associated problems.
I have completed an MSc (Hons) in Biotechnology of Human Assisted Reproduction and Embryology (IVI Institute) and a degree in Biotechnology at the University of Valencia. Moreover, I have taken part in developing a programme for fertility preservation 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 president of the Oxford University Spanish Society and an executive member of the Graduate Researchers Student committee of the NDWRH.
