I am Dr Vahid Ghaffari-Laleh, a senior postdoctoral research fellow at the University of the Western Cape (UWC), Cape Town, South Africa. I hold a DVM degree from Iran and a PhD degree in reproductive biotechnology from Spain. My scientific qualifications come backed with experiences in different departments at the University of Stellenbosch, South Africa, University of London in the United Kingdom, Autonomous University of Barcelona in Spain and breeding centre in Iran focusing on sperm production laboratory and embryo transfer department.My experiences also involve co-ordinating symposiums, chairing and judging conferences as well as a being a scientific reviewer of 5 international peer-reviewed journals.I am the chairperson of the postdoctoral research fellows at UWC. I have achieved capabilities in generating research ideas, maturing hypothesis, development of controlled experimental design and performing experiments to achieve distributed data. I have been competed to solve critically lab issues and clear up factors affecting designed experiments and finally gaining better results with less interfered parameters. Meanwhile, being able to communicate in different languages (Azerbaijani, Persian, English, Spanish, Turkish and recently started learning German language) have strengthened me to have collaboration from different cultures and countries with different ideas. Therefore, I have learnt to be respectful, flexible and teamwork.
I do experiments on human sperm, Sertoli and Leydig cells using extracts of Carica Papaya seeking contraceptive effects on men. I use assisted reproductive technology techniques in my experiments. In my first postdoc position at the University of Stellenbosch, I was focused in vitro embryo culture experiments in cows. A brief overview of the project was that we were fed cows with rumen protected starch to bypass the small intestine to check productive and reproductive performances. Furthermore, I was also involved with synchronization, ovum pick up and embryo flashing farm works. My experiments during my PhD course were on domestic animal embryo production in vitro.
