Professor Ivana Oborná, MD, PhD


Reproductive medicine expert at Leeaf

Ivana started her professional career in 1985 at Olomouc University Hospital at the Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology where she practiced gynaecology and assisted reproduction, subjects she was also lecturing. In 2001, she received a Ph.D. for her research on endometrial receptivity, and in 2016, she became a Professor of Obstetrics and Gynaecology.


Between 2014 and 2018, Ivana served as the Vice-rector for international relations at the Palacký University Olomouc.


While she continues to practice gynaecology and assisted reproduction in a private IVF clinic, Ivana is still devoted to medical education. She works as an assessor at the World Federation for Medical Education and as an evaluator at the Czech National Accreditation Bureau for Higher Education.

At Leeaf, Ivana works closely with the team and uses her expertise to deliver the most relevant and high-quality medical content to our users. She assists our Tech team to set-up Leeaf machine learning and AI algorithms.


"The minute I was born, I was crying out: Aiii Aiii Aiii...
I  already knew that artificial intelligence is the future."

"As in many fields of science and research, I am convinced that artificial intelligence is the future of management of assisted reproduction"
