Dr. Yang's Abstract Wins SRBT Basic Science Award

CHR is please do announce that Mia Yang, PhD, Junior Scientist at CHR and Postdoctoral Associate in the Laboratory of Stem Cell Biology and Molecular Embryology at the Rockefeller University, won the SRBT Basic Science Award for her abstract accepted to this year’s ASRM meeting. Awarded by the Society of Reproductive Biologists and Technologists, SRBT Basic Science Award recognizes accomplishments of outstanding basic scientists in reproductive biology.

Dr. Yang’s abstract, “SELF-CORRECTION OF MOSAICISM IN HUMAN SELF-ORGANIZING GASTRULOIDS AS POTENTIAL EXPLANATION FOR NORMAL BIRTHS AFTER TRANSFER OF CHROMOSOMAL-ABNORMAL EMBRYOS,” elucidates the amazing capacity of early-stage human embryos to correct chromosomal abnormalities in themselves and grow into healthy babies. The study was conducted in collaboration with the Rockefeller University, a long-time research collaborator of CHR, and provides a potentially decisive reason PGT-A should not be a routine practice in IVF. It also explains why there have been hundreds of perfectly normal babies born from transfers of embryos that were deemed chromosomal abnormal by PGT-A, or its predecessor, PGS.

Dr. Yang will be presenting the abstract at this year’s ASRM meeting. Congratulations, Dr. Yang!
