The Human Embryo and Embyronic Stem Cell Biology
On December 15, 2010, Renee Reijo Pera spoke to the CIRM Governing Board about her research studies of the human embryo and embryonic stem cells. Using time lapse video of the embryo’s initial cell divisions, Pera’s lab identified parameters that can accurately predict human embryo viability. These findings could improve the success rate for couples trying to have children through in vitro fertilization as well as reduce the number of embryos used in the procedure. Pera is director of Stanford’s Center for Human Embryonic Stem Cell Research and Education. She was introduced by Robert Klein, chair of the CIRM Governing Board.

During a laparotomy (surgical incision into the abdominal cavity), a giant, smooth, vascularized, cystic mass attached to the right ovary was encountered. An oophorectomy (ovary removal surgery) was conducted on the 35 year-old female patient.
