Call for Abstracts: Epigenetics ‘Meeting Within a Meeting’ at the 2015 Society for the Study of Reproduction Annual Meeting
18–22 June 2015 San Juan, Puerto Rico
Deadline for short talks and posters abstract submission: 30 January 2015
The fields of reproduction and epigenetics are inextricably linked. The 2015 meeting of the Society for the Study of Reproduction (SSR) will feature the most extensive gathering to date of reproductive biologists and world‐renowned epigeneticists. An in-depth knowledge of epigenetic programming in the germ line and during development is essential to a complete understanding of the fundamental mechanisms implicated in transgenerational transmission of epigenetic effects and developmental origins of health and disease (DOHAD), as well as the effects of environmental exposures (diet, toxicants, behavior) and non-genetic modes of inheritance.
We invite you to attend the 48th annual meeting of the SSR (http://www.ssr.org/15Meeting) to be held 18–22 June 2015 in beautiful and historic San Juan, Puerto Rico, where the intersection of reproduction and epigenetics will be highlighted in three consecutive afternoon sessions.
Morning sessions will include outstanding keynote speakers whose talks will address the provocative, overall meeting theme: “The Evolution of Sex.” In the evenings, social gatherings will afford opportunities to meet with old friends, network, and form new collaborative relationships. Opportunities for presentation of short talks and posters require abstract submission by 30 January 2015 (http://www.ssr.org/15Abstracts). We look forward to welcoming you to the 2015 SSR meeting in Puerto Rico!
