    Challenges in reproductive medicine

    17-18 September, Gent

    • Should we focus on contraception or on reproduction in an age of global warming? 
    • Can we continue to breed domestic animals for meat production? 
    • How can we prevent or modulate epigenetic changes in offspring conceived after assisted reproduction?
    • Can we design the perfect baby? Can we forge the ideal animal and are we allowed to do that?
    • How can we preserve genetic material in health and illness, and even after death?
    • Will we be able to grow a genital tract and maybe even a mammalian foetus in vitro? 
       

    These questions will be handled in the two-day workshop 'Challenges in reproductive medicine'. Make sure to register!
    You can also send in an abstract for an oral and/or poster presentation. The best presentation will receive a prize at the end of the meeting.
