First media alert

European Society of Human Reproduction & Embryology (ESHRE)

26th annual meeting

Sunday 27 June – Wednesday 30 June 2010


Fiera Roma
Via Portuense, 1645-1647
00148 Rome


Reproductive medicine is one of the most exciting scientific and clinical areas. Every month different announcements of research developments, medical ‘firsts’, new rulings by regulatory bodies, or ethical controversies are published and often spark a heated debate among practitioners in the field, as well as ethicists, legislators, the media and the public,.


ESHRE’s annual meeting is the forum where more than 6,000 of the world’s leading experts in reproductive medicine gather to give the first public presentation of their latest research findings and to discuss issues that are presenting law-makers and ethicists with some of the most challenging problems and difficult decisions currently facing society.


We welcome the media to the meeting. All sessions are open to journalists and registration is free to bona fide journalists on presentation of official press credentials.
