I had the great opportunity to attend The Fertility 2018 Conference (4-6 January) which took place in Liverpool. The Joint Fertility Conference is an annual event hosted by the Association of Clinical Embryologists, British Fertility Society and the Society for Reproduction and Fertility.
The main topic of this year’s conference was “Environmental influences of reproduction” and, indeed, endocrine disruptors were mentioned in several sessions and presentations. Furthermore, Prof. Paul Fowler, my supervisor, gave a talk during the scientific update session about periconceptional health on the “Effect of prenatal exposures to environmental toxins on female reproduction”.
This was the first conference I have attended and it was indeed a good way to start the year with science!
