Identify the origin of In Vitro Fertilization and the 2010 nobel prize winner associated with this technique.

In Vitro Fertilization began in the UK in 1978, with Edwards RG succeeding with this process. He was awarded the Nobel Prize in Medicine in 2010 for his work.

Identify a recent paper on fertilization and describe its key findings.

Improvements in human sperm quality by long-term in vitro co-culture with isolated porcine Sertoli cells

Co-Culture of sperm and Sertoli cell feeder (CCSCF) were able to maintain normal sperm motility, viability and mitochondrial function for 7 days. This is of great importance to ART technologies for long-term culture and enabling sperm to be transferred between 2 distant centers while maintaining their potential.

Improvements in human sperm quality by long-term in vitro co-culture with isolated porcine Sertoli cells

Identify 2 congenital anomalies.

Atrial Septal Defect- lacking of the interatrial septum, enabling blood flow between the left and right atria.

Arnold-Chiari Malformation- downward displacement of the cerebellar tonsils through foramen magnum.
