Event/Product information

Fields of fertility preservation and assisted reproduction are advancing at a very fast pace. During that rapid progress however, many controversies, uncertainties, and challenges arise. To foster collaboration and cooperation between the two sides of the pond, and to address these challenges, we put together a consortium under the name of Trans Atlantic Reproductive Technologies Network. The first meeting of TARTEN aims to highlight main challenges and prepare the groundwork for further development of this group. Myself and Dr Macklon would like to see this meeting as an opportunity to discuss the challenging yet exciting new areas in Fertility Preservation and Reproductive Technologies in the beautiful and historical setting of Istanbul, Turkey. Unlike many large, multi-concurrent session meetings in our field, this meeting promises to be the one that will give you the best opportunity to interact with leaders and colleagues in the field.
