SSR President and Australian-native Jock K. Findlay, Ph.D, D.Sc, explains the meaning behind this year's meeting theme, Fertility: A Global Challenge. "The program reflects the importance of research in our field for the general public by highlighting the impact of research on reproduction on the environment, wildlife species, domesticated animals, human fertility, and population growth, as well as their interaction with one another."
Renowned international and national speakers will lecture on topics that include the latest research on human population growth and contraception, cloning, our genetic relationship to Neanderthals, animal agriculture and its importance in meeting the future needs of a growing human population, and how environmental and dietary exposures during pregnancy impacts future health of children.
