Welcome Note

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

We are delighted to announce that the Ovarian Club XI Meeting will take place on November 1-3, 2018 in Paris, France.

Following the success of last year’s joint collaboration between the Ovarian Club Meeting (OC) and the Congress on Controversies in Preconception, Preimplantation and Prenatal Genetic Diagnosis (CoGEN), the OC Meeting and CoGEN Congress will take place concurrently this year as well.

The Ovarian Club is a unique annual meeting that brings together leading experts to share knowledge and experience in all facets of ovarian function. The meeting is a gathering of scientists, clinicians and embryologists who have a common interest in oocyte and early embryo development and the implantation process.

Past meetings have covered cutting-edge topics in areas such as:

  • The oocyte and the fertilization process
  • Blastocyst formation and the factors that control and impact implantation
  • The oocyte and early-embryo metabolism, and the effect of maternal nutrition on adaptive embryo responses that lead to disease

The 2018 meeting will address the challenge of bridging between science and clinical practice, focusing on ovarian function from oocyte recruitment to the stages of implantation and embryo development.

The Ovarian Club is a forum where researchers and clinicians present their latest studies and findings in an interactive platform, enabling open discussion with leading experts.

We look forward to welcoming you in Paris for a new and exciting Ovarian Club experience.

Sincerely yours,

Zeev Shoham
On Behalf of the Ovarian Club XI Organizing Committee
