In-Vitro Fertilization is the primary treatment of infertility, with ~2.5 million cycles performed annually. Success rates are, however, declining partly due to waiting 5 days to select the best embryo to transfer to the woman. A rapid (day 1) indicator of embryo viability, based on experimental data, will be developed through mathematical modelling of the calcium signalling in fertilising eggs and their movements, and shared with IVF clinicians.
