Dr. Cook-Andersen Awarded Prestigious Grant to Evaluate Factors Contributing to Egg and Embryo Quality
Fertility expert Heidi Cook-Andersen, M.D., Ph.D. was recently bestowed the nationally prestigious Career Award for Medical Scientists from the Burroughs Wellcome Fund to study egg quality.
As the egg matures, it grows enormously in size and the number of mitochondria (the tiny batteries supplying energy) markedly increases so that each cell of the embryo will have enough until the blastocyst stage when they again start to replicate. With age, these tiny batteries start to run low on power, resulting in less energy being available for these critical functions.
