In addition to these activities, we organized a Demo session for professional performance of ICSI, SCNT and Embryo Fusion at Cellular Reprogramming Laboratory (LA1.710) to introduce students, colleagues in this field know the techniques that we have mastered.

Other activities included a field trip to visit the Yuri-Farm, where the research farm for cloned bovine embryo transfer. A banquet and social events were also organized to introduce to the international guest’s Vietnamese culture.
