Dr. Monica Laronda and colleagues recently published a paper in the Journal of Assisted Reproduction entitled "Good manufacturing practice requirements for the production of tissue vitrification and warming and recovery kits for clinical research" . The main objective of this study was to establish an easy-to-use kit for standardized ovarian tissue vitrification and recovery and describes the critical steps, procedures, and environments for manufacturing products with the intent of submitting an investigational new drug (IND) application for future clinical trials.

Congratulations to our colleagues on this important work!
