Welcome note

Dear Friends and Colleagues

We are delighted to announced that the VIII Ovarian Club Meeting will take place on November 4-6, 2016 in Paris, France.

The Ovarian Club is a unique annual meeting bringing together leading experts to provide a comprehensive overview on all facets of ovarian function.  it is a gathering of scientists, clinicians and embryologists who have a common interest in how oocytes, early embryos and the implantation process develop.

Past meetings have discussed cutting edge topics.  The Ovarian Club in 2013 focused on the oocyte and the fertilization process.  The Ovarian Club in 2014 zeroed in on blastocyst formation and the factors that control and impact implantation.  The Ovarian Club meeting in 2015 discussed oocyte and early-embryo metabolism, and the effect of maternal nutrition on adaptive embryo responses that lead to disease.

The up-coming meeting in 2016 is taking on the challenge of building a bridge between science and clinical practice looking at the ovarian function from oocyte recruitment to the implantation and embryo development stage.

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

We look forward to welcoming you in Paris for a new and exciting Ovarian Club experience.

Sincerely yours,
Zeev Shoham
