Biography

Mr. Dasig came to Kaiser Permanente in 2004 from Stanford University's IVF Laboratory where he was the technical supervisor from 1999 to 2004. He was responsible for all functions of a large clinical in vitro fertilization laboratory, including IVF, assisted hatching, Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI), testicular and epididymal sperm preparation, embryo biopsy and preimplanta-tion genetics, embryo cryogenics, andrology, and the quality control programs for the laboratory.

In addition, Mr. Dasig is one of the first American embryologists to obtain a master's degree with specialized training in clinical human embryology. While attending the Danube University of Krems, he was able to study at the Bourn Hall Clinic in Cambridge, UK, where Drs. Patrick Steptoe and Robert Edwards conceived the first IVF baby, Louise Brown. Moreover, he is considered in the field to be an expert at blastomere biopsy and fixation.

Mr. Dasig has authored and coauthored more than 25 peer-reviewed publications and abstracts in the field of in vitro fertilization, many of them focusing on early embryo development and blastocyst culture.
