Welcome to Paris

Dear friends and colleagues,

Our joint ESHRE and ASRM 'Best Of' meetings have quickly established a tradition for bringing together world authorities in the science of reproductive medicine, with updates on the latest concepts and developments presented in a framework of lectures, debates and back-to-back sessions. The meeting is now set on a biannual track, with venues alternating between North America and Europe. The fifth meeting will be held in Paris from Thursday 23 February through Saturday 25 February 2017 at the city's Palais des Congr├Ęs, and it is our pleasure to extend a warm invitation to you all.

'The Best of ASRM & ESHRE┬┤ as it is called when taking place in Europe, is a continuing medical education (CME) programme intended to present evidence for both established and emerging approaches to the science and art of reproductive healthcare, with faculty from both societies aiming to compare global approaches and technologies for diagnosis and treatment. The programme for 2017 thus brings together sessions on gene editing, artificial gametes, energised oocytes, preconceptional genetic testing, diagnosis by RNA, and sperm DNA fragmentation. Many of these topics represent emerging concepts in reproductive medicine, and it is our aim to ensure that these advances are clearly presented within the context of progressive reproductive health. More established topics in the programme include uterine disorders, automation in the IVF lab, male factor infertility, and access to fertility care.

Paris in the early spring is also a place to enjoy, and this meeting presents a unique opportunity to combine participation in a cutting-edge conference with enjoyment of one of the world's greatest cities.

We look forward to seeing you there.
