This virtual meeting occurs bimonthly and highlights talks by trainees and very junior faculty.
The purpose of this meeting is to highlight significant scientific achievements in research, technology, resource development, and bioinformatic efforts supported by the NCTRI. The meeting provides an opportunity for investigators supported through the FIB-administered Reproductive Medicine Network and the CRB-supported Contraceptive Development Centers to present their findings and to interact with NCTRI-supported grantees and their trainees. The meeting consists of the Sadler Lecture and at least one Keynote Lecture and a series of oral sessions.
This year's virtual meeting schedule is as follows:
11:30 am - 4:00 pm
