SSR 2017 Annual Meeting

50 Years of Research: Looking Back and Moving Forward

Save The Date - 2017 SSR Meeting

50th Annual Meeting of the Society for the Study of Reproduction
13–16 July 2017
Marriott Wardman Park—Washington D.C.

SSR 2017: Welcome from the Program Chairs and President 

We encourage you to attend SSR’s 50th Anniversary Meeting, “50 Years of Research: Looking Back and Moving Forward,” to be held in Washington, DC, at the Marriott Wardman Park Hotel this 13–16 July 2017. It is our hope that, together, we will create and enjoy a celebratory meeting that will simultaneously recognize the contributions of the SSR to society and highlight reproductive biology as the cornerstone of developing fields such as stem cell biology, epigenetics, and the developmental origins of health and disease (DOHaD).

We are thrilled that Professor and Fellow of the Royal Society Azim Surani of the Gurdon Institute of Cancer and Developmental Biology will deliver the opening keynote lecture. The President’s Symposium will be on DOHaD, and we are pleased that Professors Mark Hanson (University of Southampton) and Tracy Bale (University of Pennsylvania) are confirmed to speak. There will also be a special session on Propelling High-Impact Outcomes in Reproductive Biology: From Bench to Commercialization to Entrepreneur. To highlight the roots of the SSR in animal reproductive biology, we are working with the American Society of Animal Science to host a joint workshop. Taking advantage of our location in DC, there will be a panel on Translating Reproductive Science into Public Health Policies, Medical Practice, and Community Interventions, with stakeholders from government and NGOs to discuss the knowledge gaps that need to be filled by research to better inform reproductive health policies and practices.

We look forward to welcoming you to Washington, DC, and celebrating together.
