There have been a series of Embryology Tutorials timetabled for the current BGD cycle. Please only attend the tutorial that your group has been timetabled.
The content to be covered will be based upon the Lectures and Practicals in the current course. The broad concept is the sequence of development: gametogenesis, fertilisation, preimplantation development, implantation, embryonic development, fetal development. There will be some course materials not yet covered (fetal and placenta).
If you have specific topics that you would like covered in the tutorial, please submit them to your tutor beforehand. I am always happy to answer specific emailed questions, but prefer to post the answers here so that all students can benefit. Please subject the email "BGD Embryology Question" followed by the topic of the question.
