Portrait of  Julien Camard

Julien Camard

Ph.D. student


Julien’s research, Optical Coherence Tomography for Embryology, is part of 5DHiResE, ‘5-Dimensional High-Resolution non-invasive assessment of mammalian Embryos’, a collaboration with Prof Darren Griffin’s group at the School of Biosciences, University of Kent, funded by a major BBSRC grant. This project involves developing novel OCT imaging devices and probes to assess the viability of in-vitro produced mammalian embryos.
