Just Bead It

In this series of experiments, you'll begin to explore the world of oncofertility research that is taking place at Northwestern University. The team consists of research scientists, biomedical engineers, graduate students, and many others. They are working to develop a system that will allow men and women who are diagnosed with cancer to potentially preserve their fertility. The team is working to achieve this for women by performing experiments to help follicles (containing mature egg cells) to develop in vitro.
