ESHRE's annual meeting -- press program

The annual meeting of ESHRE, the world's leading event in reproductive medicine, is only weeks away - and the press programme almost complete. Once again the meeting promises one of the best sources of news and features in fertility and reproductive medicine. This year's event will take place in London from 7-10th July.

More than 9000 of the world's leading experts in reproduction are expected this year, and, from a total of 1600 abstracts of new research submitted, ten have been selected for the press programme.

The programme will comprise ten press releases (issued under embargo a few days in advance) and a news briefing on two of the three congress days. Here, investigators will describe their research and answer press questions on its scientific and public health implications.

Topics to be covered include:

  • successful embryo selection for IVF with new genome sequencing technique
  • the motivation of egg donors in European clinics (altruism or money?)
  • in utero and early life influences on male fertility
  • environmental pollution and its effects on IVF outcome
  • IVF for 200 euro per cycle: ready for developing countries?
  • cancer risk in IVF children
  • the women who store their eggs for fertility preservation
  • shift working and its effect on reproductive outcomes
  • how obesity affects the implantation potential of the uterus

The news briefings will take place at 9.30 am on Monday 8th July and Tuesday 9th July. Each news briefing will cover four topics, with short presentations from investigators and time for questions.

A preview briefing of all the press releases will be held on Friday 5th July at 10.00 am at the Science Media Centre in Lo ndon (215 Euston Road, London NW1 2BE). All press releases will be available (on paper and under embargo) at this briefing, with comment from UK and ESHRE experts.

Press releases under embargo will be distributed electronically on Saturday 6th July, and will be openly available on the ESHRE website ( once the embargoes have lifted. One press release suitably embargoed has been selected for Monday publications and will be previewed in detail by the principal investigator at the Friday morning briefing.
