Welcome Note

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

We are delighted to announce that the Ovarian Club IX Meeting will take place on September 15-16, 2017 in Barcelona, Spain.

The Ovarian Club is a unique annual meeting that brings together leading experts to share knowledge and experience on all facets of ovarian function. The meeting is a gathering of scientists, clinicians and embryologists who have a common interest in oocyte and early embryo development and the implantation process.

Past meetings have covered cutting-edge topics in areas such as:

  • The oocyte and the fertilization process
  • Blastocyst formation and the factors that control and impact implantation
  • The oocyte and early-embryo metabolism, and the effect of maternal nutrition on adaptive embryo responses that lead to disease

The 2017 meeting will address the challenge of bridging between science and clinical practice, focusing on ovarian function from oocyte recruitment to the stages of implantation and embryo development.

The Ovarian Club is a forum where researchers and clinicians present their latest studies and findings in an interactive platform, enabling open discussion with leading experts.

We look forward to welcoming you in Barcelona for a new and exciting Ovarian Club experience.

Sincerely yours,


Zeev Shoham
On Behalf of the Ovarian Club IX Organizing Committee
