Open Philanthropy recommended a grant of $2,500,000 over five years to the University of New South Wales to support research led by Professor Robert Gilchrist on in vitro maturation of oocytes. This funding is intended to support the development of improved methods for obtaining healthy, mature oocytes from women who intend to use in vitro fertilization to conceive.

This falls within our work on scientific research, specifically within our interest in advancing transformative basic science.
