Symposium in Reproductive Science and Women's Health
Each spring the Forum sponsors the University of Kentucky Symposium in Reproductive Science and Women's Health. Its purpose is to bring faculty, clinicians, and trainees in the field of reproductive sciences together to exchange ideas and information with each other and with recognized leaders of the reproductive sciences research community. This conference is a keystone of the research and graduate training programs at the University of Kentucky. Registration is open to anyone interested in attending. The Symposium Organization Committee will be accepting abstracts until May 10, 2013 for the Thursday morning poster session in the Gallery of the William T. Young Library with the presentation of the invited talks in the Auditorium. Here are some scenes from a previous Symposium.
The 32nd Annual Symposium in
Reproductive Science and Women's Health
To promote an interchange of ideas on the latest concepts in reproductive biology on the University campus, the University of Kentucky Symposium in Reproductive Sciences was established in 1981. The format of the yearly conference is structured as a two day didactic conference consisting of four state-of-the-art presentations by preeminent reproductive scientists. During their stay, the speakers spend two half days presenting an overview and update of the latest concepts and ideas in their respective fields and a half day with the students and fellows. The Symposium has been exceptionally successful in the education of students and fellows as well as promoting reproductive sciences at the University and within the region.
The 32nd Annual Symposium in Reproductive Science and Women's Health will be held on May 16 & 17, 2013. Our guest speakers this year are Dr. Blanche Capel, Dr. Gary D. Smith, Dr. Phillip Bridges, and Dr. Peter J. Hansen. Previous symposia have required the use of a paper form registration. This year we are encouraging the use of an online registration system. Please see below for the registration link.
