Annual Meeting of the Society for the Study of Reproduction

Project: Research project

Project Details

Description

Project Summary The Society for the Study of Reproduction (SSR) holds an annual scientific meeting attended by ~900 basic and clinical researchers, teachers, and undergraduate, graduate, and postdoctoral trainees, from universities, medical schools, research institutes, and clinics in the U.S. and more than 30 other countries. The three-fold goals of every meeting are (1) to present state-of-the-art research in the biology underlying and associated with reproduction, fertility, and development; (2) to provide an environment that encourages scientific dialogue, collaboration, and innovation and (3) to provide a meeting program, setting, and culture that promotes inclusiveness and professional development of trainees and early-stage investigators. Each meeting consists of plenary and state-of-the-art lectures by world-class scientists, and 20-25 concurrent sessions (with 2-4 speakers in each) over 3 and a half days that focus on subjects of interest to scientists in biomedical, clinical, and veterinary and animal science, as well as those who concentrate on wildlife conservation. Oral and poster presentations (typically 50-100 and 500-600, respectively) highlight research contributions by scientists from a range of career stages, but with a special focus on trainees and early career investigators. These presentations are selected from submitted abstracts, based on quality review by the Program Committee. Abstracts submitted for trainee award competitions also are reviewed by the SSR's Awards Committee. This grant application is a renewal of our longstanding SSR annual meeting grant and will support the SSR Annual meetings in 2023 (Ottawa, CA), 2024 (Dublin, IE), sites for 2025-27 are yet to be determined.
