Michael Wilson, PhD


Dr. Wilson, a graduate of Texas A&M University, with a Ph.D. in Physiology of Reproduction has been an embryologist for almost 30 years. He is a board certified High Complexity Laboratory Director

His graduate research was the study of ultra structural changes in the Equine embryo due to the exposure of cryoprotectants and cryopreservation. Dr. Wilson worked in a research setting for several years cloning embryos utilizing animal models and working with the original researchers testing the animal form of the hormone used today for ovarian stimulation in women.

Since 1992, Dr. Wilson has worked in Assisted Reproduction as an embryologist and as a Laboratory Director for embryology, andrology and endocrinology laboratories. Dr. Wilson was at the forefront of Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection in the US, a procedure which revolutionized the treatment of male factor infertility. One of the first babies born in the US from this procedure was from the laboratory where he was Director.

Dr. Wilson introduced the extended culture for embryos for cryopreservation in 1995. In 1999, Dr. Wilson began extended embryo culture for all embryos to the blastocysts stage prior to Embryo Transfer. This was the first program to successfully do exclusively blastocysts embryo transfer and cryopreservation. Dr. Wilson has been an invited speaker in the US, Canada, Europe and Japan to discuss this methodology and success of an all embryo blastocysts transfer program.

Dr. Wilson and the embryologist at Conceptions continue to advance the science and art of Assisted Reproduction in the In Vitro Fertilization Laboratory by introducing the latest technology to improve the opportunity for our couples to become families.
