  • The Conference will present unbiased information without influences from commercial biases
  • Our focus is on "newly evolving biological paradigms leading to new clinical treatment approaches"
  • The Conference will provide a unique opportunity for exchanges between basic scientists and clinicians
  • A Young Investigator Award of $5,000 will be offered on-site to the senior author under age 40 with the best poster
  • Accepted abstracts will be published in the Journal of Assisted Reproduction and Genetics (JARG) with submission deadline: June 15, 2016
  • New York City offers during the pre-Holiday Season a unique visitor experience, unmatched anywhere else in the world


If you are tired of hearing only the “politically correct,” over and over again, then this Conference will not disappoint.

Uninfluenced by commercial interests, leading basic scientists and clinicians from all over the world will present paradigm changes in reproductive medicine you, likely, have not heard about before. If you still believe that preimplantation genetic screening (PGS) improves IVF outcomes, you will likely change your mind once you find out how flawed the biological basis of PGS really is. If you believe in blastocyst stage culture and other embryo selection methods, you may be disappointed to learn that they really do not improve outcomes, and in poor prognosis patients actually reduce pregnancy chances. And did you know that the implanting embryo is biologically practically independent up to approximately day 10? Think about what that means for implantation! And, how about culturing primordial follicles/oocytes in vitro to maturity? We may be closer than you think to the completely unstimulated IVF cycle of the future.

In short, you should attend this conference to learn TO THINK DIFFERENTLY!
