"I have always been fascinated by the miracle of life and in particular by the possibility to monitor the early steps of embryo development. My passion for this profession derives from the exceptional possibility of helping couples experience the joy of pregnancy. One of the unique characteristics of UCSF is that we can offer excellent and tailored medical and emotional care to the individual couple."
