First Steps towards Creating an Artificial Human Ovary.

Nov 16, 2017

Maja Ramløse is a veterinarian working on a temporary contract at the Laboratory of Reproductive Biology(LRB), Rigshospitalet since September 2017. Maja is involved in several projects at the LRB, including working on bioengineering an ovary. The project aims at developing safe and feasible means of preserving fertility for patients receiving gonadotoxic treatment, as this is currently not possible in all patient groups. Recent studies indicate that a bioengineered ovary consisting of a decellularized matrix that has been reseeded with healthy ovarian cells can be a potential way of restoring fertility in patients. The project is in the process of in vitro and in vivo research on the biocompatibility and biofunctionality of decellularized human ovarian tissue which has been recellularized with murine and human ovarian cells. Furthermore, Maja is involved in a PhD project focusing on ovarian reserve assessment and –activation.
