Karen Doye
Clinical Nurse Specialist in Pre-Implantation Genetic Testing @CooperSurgical
Karen has worked for CooperSurgical since January 2018 and continues to build on her experience with pre-implantation genetic testing for monogenic diseases (PGT-M) and for aneuploidies (PGT-A). Karen counsels almost all of the people undergoing PGT-A through CooperSurgical’s UK laboratory, who seek pre-test information or post-test reviews. It is a privilege for her to speak directly to those having particular difficulties having a baby and to help them to understand their results in order to inform decisions afterwards. Prior to her work at Cooper, she has worked in PGT since 2003 at University College London and in the large London fertility clinic, CRGH, so has a wealth of experience in the field and the changes which have occurred over the years.
