Free sample

This Epub incorporates 37 years of embodied research at Monash & La Trobe Universities, Melbourne, by the author with his colleagues in Australia and overseas (England, Singapore, India, Sri Lanka, Italy & Japan).It is a multi-author, visual presentation of the microscopic structure of human oocytes, sperm and embryos in conjunction with clinical IVF and ART and includes embryonic stem cells, a logical extension of ART.Most of the images were taken with electron microscopes (TEM & SEM), light and phase microscopes (LM) and fluorescent microscopes (FM) with diagrams.Both published micrographs (from our atlases and journals) and also original unpublished micrographs are presented. The printed atlases were scanned and new material was provided on PPT, PDF & YouTube for EPub.The aim of this EPub is to make our research available online for clinicians, scientists & students and posterity.

About the author

Honorary Adjunct Professor, Anatomy & Developmental Biology, Monash University, Melbourne, AustraliaProfessor Sathananthan is a world authority on human fertilization and early embryogenesis and his most significant discovery is the inheritance, replication and perpetuation of the sperm centrosome in human embryos (1991 - 1996), working with the Monash and Singapore IVF teams. He also postulated a new theory of infertility based on centrosome function and dysfunction in human embryos in 1991, which postulated that poorly motile sperm produce poor embryos. This theory is currently gaining world-wide acceptance. Dr. Sathananthan has also contributed to eight world's firsts in IVF and assisted reproduction. He is yet actively engaged in research on embryonic stem cells and has recently focused on visual presentations in ART on CD-ROM and on the internet for teaching, research and clinical purposes.His contributions to Human Embryology, is promoting a better understanding of the first week of human development; application of basic embryology to clinically-oriented research in assisted reproduction; unravelling the mechanics of cell division during embryonic cleavage; and teaching clinically-oriented visual embryology. His vision is to popularise the microstructure of gametes and embryos to clinicians, researchers, teachers, technicians, students and the general public, using his vast collection of original images, he has generated over the years. He is available for consultations and workshops in embryology for ART and electron microscopy.http://www.sathembryoart.com/images.html
