Marc Yeste graduated with a Bachelor of Sciences (Biology) and an MSc in Biotechnology from Girona University and earned an European PhD in Reproductive Biology in 2008. He also graduated with a Bachelor of Political and Social Sciences from UNED University, Madrid (Spain).
Dr Yeste was a Visiting Researcher at the Institute of Zoology, Zoological Society of London (2006-2007) and was promoted to Assistant Professor of Cell Biology at the Faculty of Human Medicine, University of Girona (2008). In 2011, he moved to the Department of Animal Medicine and Surgery, Autonomous University of Barcelona, as a Juan de la Cierva Postdoctoral Research Fellow. He lectured Reproductive Technology and Physiology of Obstetrics and Animal Reproduction at the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine. In 2014, Dr Yeste joined the Nuffield Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology, University of Oxford, as a Marie Curie Fellow, and began to lecture in the MSc in Clinical Embryology.
Currently, he is a Senior Research Fellow (Ramón y Cajal) at the Department of Biology, University of Girona, and Director at TechnoSperm, a Research Centre on Reproductive Biology (www.technosperm.com). Dr Yeste teaches at the Faculties of Human Medicine, Nursing and Sciences, and for the MSc in Food Biotechnology and in Molecular Biology and Biomedicine.
His research has tackled different angles of Reproductive Biology in mammals (including humans, pigs, cattle, horses, donkeys, sheep, mouse and dogs): cryopreservation of gametes and embryos; sperm physiology; interactions of sperm with epithelial cells from different reproductive tissues (epididymis and fallopian tube/oviduct); oocyte activation deficiency; in vitro maturation of oocytes; fertility preservation; and genetics of infertility.
