ASRM’s Annual Meeting promises to be a special experience this year, as we convene in beautiful Hawaii. We hope you will able to join us at the Honolulu Convention Center, just down the road from Waikiki Beach.
The theme of our meeting, change, is reflected in the emergence of new genetic tools and techniques from basic science which are now finding a place in clinical medicine. The meeting’s scientific program has been planned to incorporate genetics into reproductive medicine, highlighting new methodologies and capabilities in genetic diagnosis and preimplantation genetic screening.
The latest scientific advances in reproductive endocrinology will be discussed, as well, along with their clinical applications. Symposia, plenaries, and interactive sessions will address gamete and embryo development, stem cells, reproductive options for patients, disorders of the male and female reproductive system at different ages throughout the lifespan, the effect of cancer and its treatment on human reproduction, and more! Information on meeting sessions can be found in the Preliminary Program at http://www.asrm.org/2014Program/.
The Media Registration Form is on-line at http://www.asrm.org/MediaPreRegistration/. We will issue credentials and press kits on-site at our press room in the Honolulu Convention Center. Please see http://www.asrm.org/Media_Registration_Policies/ for our media registration polices.
