Who should attend?
With knowledge attained through molecular embryology having become central in so many areas of medicine, from stem cell science to immunology, reproductive medicine, oncology and regenerative medicine to mention only a few, attendance in this conference will be of interest to many, if not most, medical specialty areas.
It will be of particular interest to obstetrician-gynecologists, clinical fertility specialists and reproductive as well as medical endocrinologists. Among basic scientists, reproductive biologists, embryologists, stem cell scientists, and reproductive geneticists will benefit from attending.
The FRM is especially interested in facilitating attendance by postdocs, residents, fellows and other professional junior staff members of research laboratories, academic departments and IVF programs and, therefore, offers greatly discounted registration fees to such junior staff members with presentation of a letter from their program director.
Abstract Submission & Publication
We are looking for submissions of innovative abstracts from basic scientists and clinical reproductive endocrinologists with potential to challenge our thinking and push the field forward. Accepted abstracts will be published by the Journal of Assisted Reproduction and Genetics (JARG), the official basic science journal of the American Society of Reproductive Medicine (ASRM) and, therefore, will be referenced. Should authors choose to submit full-length manuscripts of accepted abstracts for publication to the JARG, they will undergo expedited peer review.
Abstract submission deadline is August 1, 2018.
Young Investigator Award
Sponsored by the FRM, a “Young Investigator Award”, selected from accepted abstracts by a jury of senior faculty members, and awarded at the Opening Ceremony, will offer cash grants of up to $5,000.00. We strongly encourage previously unpublished basic science as well as clinical research submissions. Eligible for the award will be authors under age 40. Abstracts, eligible for publication and for this award have to be received by the submission deadline: August 1, 2018.
- Recognize state-of-the-arts developments in reproductive biology and their translational potential for clinical practice in reproductive endocrinology and infertility.
- Identify paradigm changes in clinical reproductive medicine, driven by new discoveries in reproductive biology.
- Evaluate current popular infertility treatments in selected patient populations.
- Apply individualized infertility medicine based on age and functional ovarian reserve of female patients.
CME Accreditation Disclosure
This program is in full compliance with the Food and Drug Administration’s position on commercial support of scientific and educational programs as promotional, “unless it can be affirmed that the program is truly independent and free of commercial influence, objective, balanced and scientifically rigorous and discloses all potential commercial conflicts of CME staff and faculty.” In addition, in accordance with accreditation requirements of the Council for Continuing Medical Education, speakers at the conference will identify potential conflicts of interest prior to their presentations.
Because the Conference is scheduled during the pre-Holiday Season when New York City hotels are usually fully booked at peak prices, we strongly recommend early hotel reservations. The FRMC has reserved at significantly discounted prices a limited number of rooms at the hotel venue of the conference, the New York Marriott East Side, centrally located at Midtown Manhattan.
Reservations will be offered on a first-come first-serve basis.
Registrants and Faculty and their spouses and/or guests are invited to the Welcome Reception on Friday, November 16, 2018 between 6:00 P.M. and 7:00 P.M. at the New York Marriott East Side Hotel. Drinks and light refreshments will be served in the exhibition area.
