The American Society of Reproductive Medicine will hold its 2021 Scientific Congress and Expo in Baltimore from October 17
The three-day conference will host more than 3,000 professionals in reproductive patient care and research from throughout the U.S. and more than 80 countries are scheduled to attend the in-person meeting – the first large convention held in Baltimore since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic in early 2020.
With the theme “Reproduction Reimagined,” the program is designed to address the educational and practice needs of physicians, nurses, genetic counsellors, mental health practitioners, practice managers, and professionals in public health, law, and ethics.
Nobel Prize winner Dr Jennifer Doudna, will be one of the plenary speakers
ASRM president for 2020/21 said: “We have an amazing line-up of plenary speakers this year, starting with Dr. Jennifer Doudna, who received the 2020 Nobel Prize in Chemistry for her pioneering work with CRISPR gene editing, a breakthrough that has revolutionized biomedicine.
“Our sessions will focus on a wide range of topics representing the broad scope of reproductive medicine.
“Topics will include personalized medicine, inequalities in reproductive healthcare, male reproduction, and the use of artificial intelligence in the in-vitro fertilization (IVF) laboratory.”
The 276 oral and 803 poster presentations at the meeting will also cover scientific research ranging from infertility risks and treatments, the impact of COVID-19 on pregnancy and infertility treatments, trends in Telehealth usage, and the risk of cardiovascular disease-related to infertility.
“We believe that there’s no better way to communicate the content of a scientific congress than face-to-face. The ability to engage physicians, scientists, and various other reproductive medicine advocates in structured didactic sessions, as well as with collaborative group interaction, allows the greatest amount of learning, sharing, and growth to take place,” says Vickie Gamble, Interim CEO of ASRM.
All conference attendees, exhibitors, and staff will need to show proof of COVID-19 vaccination or a negative PCR COVID test result administered within 72 hours of the event.
Attendees are encouraged to download the free CLEAR app and enrol with their vaccination information to produce a Health Pass that can be shown when entering the meeting. They can also bring their vaccination card to the entrance.
Attendees also will be required to wear masks while in the Baltimore Convention Center to comply with local regulations that are expected to be in effect at the time of the meeting.
