Journal Club Global - Revisiting the STAR trial: The Fellows debate PGT-A

Presented in Partnership with Fertility and Sterility Live, virtual event from the SREI Fellow’s Symposium in Park City, Utah, USA


Join Fertility and Sterility live from the SREI Fellow’s Symposium! We are excited to host a debate among six Fellows covering the pros and cons of PGT-A and how new technologies should be validated before clinical implementation. Join us to hear from these future leaders on the article: Revisiting the STAR trial: The Fellows debate PGT-A. They will cover timely topics, including the results of the STAR trial and how these differ from other trials, if differences in study methodology explain the various results of clinical PGT-A trials, and the steps to methodologically and clinically validate new technology in the ART laboratory.

Discussants:

Ali Bazzi MD, University of Michigan
Megan Sax MD, University of Cincinnati
Victoria Jiang MD, Massachusetts General Hospital/Harvard Medical School
Katie Coyne MD, University Hospitals, Case Western Reserve University
David Huang MD, University of California San Francisco
Zach Walker MD, Brigham and Women’s Hospital / Harvard Medical School

Moderator:

Kurt T. Barnhart, MD, MSCE, Editor and Chief, Fertility and Sterility
