Carolina Maside is Doctor of Veterinary Medicine by the University of Murcia. Her research activity is based on assisted reproduction techniques in different domestic species such as artificial insemination, in vitro culture of follicles and ovarian cortex, in vitroembryo production, vitrification and embryo transfer.
She is currently a beneficiary of a project co-financed by the Junta de Castilla La Mancha and the European Regional Development Fund that studies non-invasive morphofunctional and molecular biomarkers of oocyte and embryo competence in small ruminants. The objective of this project is the development non-invasive selection techniques based on morphofunctional and molecular markers of the oocyte and cumulus cells allowing to predict the oocyte quality. The application of this techniques on in vitro embryo production systems would increase their final efficiency outcomes.
Carolina develops her research in the Instituto de Investigación en Recursos Cinegéticos (IREC – CSIC, UCLM, JCCM), in the area of animal reproduction of the Research Group in Health and Biotechnology (SaBio).
