Hands-On Workshop

“Vintage Vitrification”
Freezing and Thawing the Old, the New, and the Outdated

May 3, 2019
Mt. Washington Hotel, Bretton Wood, NH

Focus:

This year prior to the Annual Meeting on Friday, May 3rd, we would like to offer a Workshop focused on Vitrification.  Followed by a presentation from Marlane Angle, PhD, registrants will have the opportunity to thaw embryos from all the devices which are currently available as well as those vintage devices which for the most part are only in storage. This workshop is targeted to embryologists attending the meeting.  CooperSurgical, Fertility & Genomics will host a sit down lunch with a genomics speaker, Mike Large, PhD presenting "Reproductive Genomics" to workshop attendees, genetic counselors and doctors. Space is limited.

Target Audience:
The target audience for the morning and afternoon hands-on workshop would be embryologists. For the lunch presentation, the audience would include the morning workshop attendees genetic counselors and doctors.
