The ASPIRE 2022 Congress is now only days away in a virtual, but vital format that promises to project participants into exciting future developments in assisted reproductive technology.
With 30 concurrent sessions over three days from 29 April to 1 May, the Congress will feature 110 outstanding speakers as the global focus on advances in assisted reproduction turns to the Asia Pacific region.
Professor Budi Wiweko, Chairman of the Congress Scientific Committee, said participants would gain “cutting edge” knowledge about assisted reproductive technology that could be applied to improve the quality of patient care and treatment outcomes in their clinics.
The Congress program will cover basic reproductive sciences, embryology and clinical sessions.
It will explore the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on IVF treatment cycles, latest global data on outcomes of assisted reproductive technology, fertility preservation in cancer patients, the future of miscarriage care and challenges of access to and affordability of infertility treatment.
There will also be a special educational video presentation on complicated reproductive surgery, a focus on artificial intelligence, robotics and digital advances along with compelling panel sessions to discuss perspectives on new or controversial topics.
The subject of the highly anticipated Bruno Lunenfeld Lecture on day one of the Congress will be Global ART Data: What Does It Tell Us About Our World? It will be delivered by acclaimed American reproductive endocrinologist and surgeon, David Adamson, Clinical Professor at Stanford University School of Medicine, Past President of the American Society for Reproductive Medicine,
Chair of the International Committee Monitoring ART (ICMART) and President of the World Endometriosis Research Foundation.
