Research and Teaching

CEFRA is committed to innovation and research

In 2015, the Center for Fertility and Assisted Reproduction (CEFRA) boosted its commitment to innovation and research, by creating a Research Unit.  The priority lines of this unit are  the design, implementation and optimization of innovative techniques and treatments, for assisted reproduction.

As part of this initiative, CEFRA repatriated (from Belgium) a Peruvian biologist  (Sergio Romero Loyola, PhD) who has research expertise in the field of Reproductive Biology and Medicine, and now leads our research team.
