Reproductive mechanisms (P01387)
In the last decade or so, studies in the field of Reproductive Biology have lead to an explosive increase in our understanding of the mechanisms controlling fertility, enabling us to gain an unprecedented control of the processes of reproduction (e.g. in vitro fertilization and other assisted conception techniques that have revolutionised Reproductive Medicine and Veterinary practice) and have played a key role in the design of novel forms of contraceptives and fertility control agents.
