Dr Dagan Wells
Associate Professor, Nuffield Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology
Dr Wells has published more than 150 scientific papers, including the first studies to perform comprehensive analysis of chromosomes in human embryos and the first genetic diagnosis of cancer predisposition in human embryos. He has been actively involved in preimplantation genetic diagnosis (PGD) and the study of human gametes and embryos for over two decades.
He directs a clinical laboratory offering PGD services to IVF clinics throughout the UK and internationally, helping families to avoid the transmission of serious inherited conditions to their children.
