Can IVF benefit from Extracellular Vesicles?
DR. JULIANO COELHO DA SILVEIRA
Juliano Coelho da Silveira graduated in Biological Sciences at PUCRS-Brazil, has master’s degree in Genetics and Applied Toxicology from ULBRA-Brazil and PhD in Biomedical Sciences from Colorado State University-USA. His research focus is understanding the intercellular communication within the ovarian follicle, oviduct and uterine. The ultimate goals are to decode the roles of extracellular vesicles during folliculogenesis and early embryo development in order to understand female reproductive biology, develop new biomarkers and supplements to use in the in vitro production system. Additionally, he investigates the roles of miRNAs during folliculogenesis and early embryo development in order to find new biological pathways associated with oocyte quality and embryo viability.
