SSR is an association of scientists and physicians interested in research in reproduction. Some are engaged in basic or applied research, while others perform clinical practice, but all are dedicated to advancing knowledge of reproductive processes in animals and in humans.
The Society for the Study of Reproduction (SSR) was founded in 1967 to promote the study of reproduction by fostering interdisciplinary communication among scientists, holding conferences, and publishing meritorious studies. The Society is governed by an eight-member Board of Directors, as well as six officers, twelve standing committees, and three ad hoc committees.
Ongoing Society publications include its official journal, Biology of Reproduction, and its thrice-yearly newsletter. Other publications include articles by Irving Rothchild and Robert H. Foote, and a 44-minute documentary by Patricia Hoyer and Craig Highberger.
Contributions from members and friends are used in their entirety to support the programs through which the Society pursues its objectives. With your help, SSR will continue to serve the world community by focusing on important problems in human and animal reproduction relative to medicine, agriculture, and basic biology.
