Spotlight on Science Meetings, Conferences and Events brings you information on the following event: Society for the Study of Reproduction - SSR 2017
We encourage you to attend SSR’s 50th Anniversary Meeting, “50 Years of Research: Looking Back and Moving Forward,” to be held in Washington, DC, at the Marriott Wardman Park Hotel this 13–16 July 2017. It is our hope that, together, we will create and enjoy a celebratory meeting that will simultaneously recognize the contributions of the SSR to society and highlight reproductive biology as the cornerstone of developing fields such as stem cell biology, epigenetics, and the developmental origins of health and disease (DOHaD).
To highlight the roots of the SSR in animal reproductive biology, we are working with the American Society of Animal Science to host a joint workshop. Taking advantage of our location in DC, there will be a panel on Translating Reproductive Science into Public Health Policies, Medical Practice, and Community Interventions, with stakeholders from government and NGOs to discuss the knowledge gaps that need to be filled by research to better inform reproductive health policies and practices.
