Suliman (Suli) Yagoub is an Australian Research Council Centre of Excellence for Nanoscale Biophotonics (CNBP) PhD candidate working in the Reproductive Success team under Prof Jeremy Thompson and Dr Kylie Dunning supervision. Suli’s research project looks at developing an automated IVF platform that will allow for the standardisation of IVF procedures.

This multidisciplinary project combines the fields of developmental biology with engineering, physics and chemistry. Suli's approach seeks to reduce the variability in IVF treatment by removing variability in live birth rates as a result of human handling of embryos during the process. A further aim is to grant individuals and couples who live anywhere in the world access to IVF treatment. Suli is collaborating with Prof Brant Gibson from RMIT University, Prof David Gardner from University of Melbourne and other collaborators within the CNBP umbrella.

His overall research interest is in the oocyte and embryo micro-environment management and assessment, assisted reproductive technologies and artificial intelligence.
