  2. Embryonic Stem Cells and Biology Institute (Tehran)[11]
  3. Developmental Biotechnology Institute (Isfahan).[12]

Reproductive Biomedicine Institute

Royan Institute for Reproductive Medicine (RI-RB) was established in ,[13] the vision of this institute has been to promote the health of the population and increase the rate of successful pregnancy along with improving the health of the fetus.

  • Epidemiology and Reproductive Health
  • Reproductive Imaging
  • Androlog
  • Reproductive Genetics
  • Endocrine glands and Female Infertility
