In honor of the Society for the Study of Reproduction’s (SSR) 50th Anniversary, a joint Triennial Reproduction Symposium will be held on Thursday, July 13, 2017, from 8:00 AM – 3:20 PM, at the Washington Marriott Wardman Park in Washington, D.C. It is co-hosted by SSR and ASAS.
The Triennial Reproduction Symposium, entitled "Looking Back and Moving Forward—How Reproductive Physiology has Evolved," is focused on large animal/domestic livestock (USDA-related species) reproduction.
In addition to the collaborative effort by the two societies, the symposium is made possible because of financial support from a National Institute of Food and Agriculture (NIFA) grant* and the ASAS Foundation Lauderdale Appreciation Club.
Co-chairs of the symposium are Andrea Cupp, Ph.D., and Debora Hamernik, Ph.D.
Registration for this special event is still open. The cost is $50 and includes busing from the ASAS-CSAS Annual Meeting & Trade Show in Baltimore to the SSR meeting site if needed. If you are onsite at the ASAS-CSAS Annual Meeting, please visit the ASAS registration desk to register for the symposium. Email questions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The schedule and speakers can be found in the ASAS-CSAS Annual Meeting Program, inside front cover. The meeting includes several invited talks, a "trainee flash talk competition," the opportunity to view posters with a "walking" lunch, and presentation of the 2017 L.E. Casida Award.
The SSR 50th Annual Meeting is July 13–16, 2017, in Washington, D.C.
