(PRWEB UK) 3 June 2011
Reproductive medicine is one of today’s most exciting scientific and clinical areas. Every month brings announcements of research developments, medical ‘firsts’, new rulings by regulatory bodies, or ethical controversies – often sparking heated debate among practitioners in the field themselves, as well as ethicists, legislators, the media and the public. ESHRE 2011 provides the media with the opportunity to hear the latest research news and interview the experts. All sessions, including Sunday pre-congress discussions, are open to the media.
