Embryologist Media is pleased to count on the presence of Lidón Carretero, who works as a geneticist at Geniality (Madrid, Spain). This company has recently made it possible, for the first time in Spain, to assist in the birth of a baby girl without the mutation responsible for the breast cancer her mother had suffered from years before. Under normal circumstances, this girl would have had high genetic predisposition to manifest the disease, just like her mother. However, and thanks to scientific progress, the girl is now a reference for future similar cases that could also become free of that same cancer-causing mutation.
