Project: Embryo-maternal interaction in the horse studied via an in vitro model

project duration
01-OCT-09 – 30-SEP-11
abstract
The dialogue of the horse embryo with the maternal genital tract is of the utmost importance for the recognition of pregnancy. By culturing horse embryos with oviduct or endometrium cells in vitro, it may be possible to mimic this dialogue in vitro. This will lead to the establishment of a validated model for oviduct and uterus which provides many possibilities for future research.
