The Cryos Symposium 2020 USA

In 2017 Cryos International held their first ever Donor Sperm Symposium in Denmark. It featured educational talks on ethics, legal issues, genetics, and andrology. In 2019 the second symposium was held, and donor eggs were added to the event.

Following the success of these two symposiums we have decided to bring the format to the U.S. Cryos will host a number of enlightening sessions focusing on ethics, law, donor children, genetics, donor sperm, and donor eggs. We have gathered experts from across the U.S. and abroad to share their knowledge and provide the audience with a unique and timely learning experience.

We feel that as a significant member of the ART industry, it is our obligation to support the medical and scientific community. The symposium allows us to share the latest developments, research, and knowledge that further promotes the medial, scientific and ethical advances in our field.

We extend our invitation to join us for what we hope becomes a bi-annual event.

Kind regards,

Corey Burke 

Tissue Bank Director at Cryos International USA
