With more than 10,000 In Vitro Fertilization cycles and nearly 25 years’ experience, Anderson continues to lead the laboratory in success rates that exceed the national average as reported to the CDC and SART every year. Anderson has been an early adopter and pioneer in blastocyst embryo transfer, cryopreservation and biopsy for genetic testing.
Anderson completed his Masters in Clinical Embryology studies at Leeds University, Leeds England under the direction of Professor Alan Handyside and Helen Picton. Tony’s studies focused on cryopreservation and non-invasive methods of predicting euploidy in early embryos. Tony completed his doctoral studies at a Nova Southeastern University, a private university in South Florida. His studies included comparison of cryopreservation methods of oocytes and pre-implantation genetic screening (PGS) of embryos for optimized outcomes
