Ovarian Club IV Meeting 2014 Paris: Blastocyst Formation and Implantation Process

  • Conference Call
  • The Orga­niz­ing Com­mit­tee is pleased to announce the fourth meet­ing of the Ovar­ian Club 2014, which will take place on Novem­ber 15 – 16, 2014 in Paris, France at the Novo­tel Paris Tour Eif­fel.

    As the Ovar­ian Club did in its past meet­ings, the forum will spawn across all the facets of the ovar­ian func­tion. But, in the tra­di­tion of the prior meet­ings, the new vin­tage of our Ovar­ian Club will also cher­ish its own ded­i­cated inter­est of the year. Prior meet­ing zoomed in on the oocyte and the fer­til­iza­tion process in ways that were highly praised by the atten­dees. In 2014, the Ovar­ian Club will zero in on blas­to­cyst for­ma­tion and the fac­tors that con­trol and impact on implantation.

    Blas­to­cyst for­ma­tion and implan­ta­tion have indeed become the core cen­ter of con­verg­ing inter­ests on the syn­chrony – or lack of – between blas­to­cyst devel­op­ment and the sequence of endome­trial changes. Putting together worldly rec­og­nized clin­i­cians and sci­en­tists that will together step-​by-​step dis­sect the processes gov­ern­ing blas­to­cyst devel­op­ment and endome­trial changes is key to find­ing new pos­si­ble avenues lead­ing to opti­mal implan­ta­tion rates.

    The Ovar­ian Club will remain the com­pre­hen­sive forum that it has been known for. In 2014 again, the Ovar­ian Club will bring together a com­pi­la­tion of inter­na­tional experts who will share and dis­cuss burn­ing state-​of-​the-​art top­ics and clin­i­cal man­age­ment issues, in a con­stant strive for opti­miz­ing the treat­ments offered to our patients.

    The Ovar­ian Club is a stage where researchers will present their newest stud­ies and find­ings in an inter­ac­tive plat­forms open for dis­cus­sions with the lead­ing expert attendees.
