The aim of the course is to provide a theoretical and practical study of a technique that has assumed a fundamental role in the field of assisted reproduction: the cryopreservation of oocytes, embryos and ovarian tissue. The different strategies of cryopreservation and their applications that currently allows preserving supernumerary embryos and allow female fertility preservation will be analyzed. The course is focused on the central role that embryonic cryopreservation is playing today in the clinical embryology laboratory and in the assisted reproduction field. In fact, thanks to the high efficiency of the current vitrification methods, which allow an almost total recovery of the cryopreserved embryos,
a new operational strategy has been developed, called "freeze-all strategy". This allows increasing the pregnancy rates postponing the transfer of cryopreserved embryos in a successive cycle where respect to the stimulation cycle is possible to develop a better endometrial receptivity.
