The Cryos Symposium 2019
Following the success of our first ever Cryos Symposium in 2017, we are thrilled to invite you to the second Cryos Symposium taking place on May 3rd 2019. The Cryos Symposium presents an opportunity for you to gain new knowledge on important topics within ethics & legislation, donor children, donor sperm and genetics, through educational lectures given by an array of international experts. Moreover, at the 2019 Cryos Symposium we will also be adding the topic of donor eggs to the agenda.
As a significant player in the field of ART, we see it as our obligation to support industry innovation and development. This is achieved by allocating resources for research and by sharing new knowledge at the Cryos Symposium, thereby supporting cooperation and fostering an international network. Our goal is to encompass the aforementioned within the 2019 Cryos Symposium.
We look forward to welcoming you to an inspiring couple of days.
