-Role of factors secreted by cumulus cells on embryo development and implantation:
The ongoing study explores the biology of the cumulus cells at the molecular level so as to establish the role of cytokines and growth factors secreted by the cumulus cells in embryonic development and also in providing a mechanism to improve embryo-uterine adhesion.

We are currently screening cumulus cells for the production of 6 main factors, namely VEGF, LIF, IL-6, TGF-b, IGF-1 and integrins since they have been identified as the main factors to impact embryo development as well as implantation.
