XVth Development and Function of Reproductive Organs International Conference

Activity: Talk or presentation typesInvited talk


Demographic and societal changes highlight reproductive issues as major economic and health concerns. This conference on ‘Reproductive Function and Dysfunction’ provides a provocative insight into the latest research in this area. World-renowned speakers will address key areas, and short oral presentations coupled with poster sessions will provide networking opportunities.

The Conference starts with a bang – the closing fireworks of Edinburgh’s International Festival - and will continue to be stimulating and informative. The first day is dedicated to a Festschrift to honour the achievements of Professor Roger Gosden, who began his prestigious career in Edinburgh.
The primary focus of the conference sessions are: ‘Reproduction and Disease’, ‘Artificial Reproductive Systems’ and ‘Modelling Reproductive Function’. The Conference will consist of plenary lectures from leaders in the field, short oral presentations and interactive poster discussions.

This meeting is the latest in an International Series entitled ‘Development and Function of Reproductive Organs’, initiated in 1969 by the late Dr Hannah Peters. It is with great pleasure that the Local Organising Committee invites you to the XVth meeting of this Series, which will focus on Reproductive Function and Dysfunction. It will be held at the University of Edinburgh, on 5th – 7th September, 2011, at the University’s new, award-winning Informatics Forum Building, which is located in the centre of historic Edinburgh.
