16th International Conference on Preimplantation Genetic Diagnosis

The Valencia Conference Centre will host the 16th International Conference on Preimplantation Genetic Diagnosis, organized by the Preimplantation Genetic Diagnosis International Society (PGDIS), from March 26th to 29th, 2017.

The organization has created a very exciting and cutting-edge scientific program to place together Scientifics, Geneticists, Clinicians and Embryologist interested in the challenging field of Reproductive Genetics.

The Scientific Program will focus on a few major areas of PGD progress - those areas with the potential to make an important impact on the evolving PGD standards and its wider application to the ART and genetic practices.

For the first time the approaches for the prospective identification of at- risk PGD couples will be addressed, based on the available personalized or extended gene testing panels, or the testing of the sperm and egg donors. Among the other major areas to review are intrinsic and extrinsic factors in the origin of aneuploidy, including common chromosomal variants and genetic polymorphisms, the controlled ovarian stimulation modalities, embryo culture conditions, lifestyle, and environment.

The mission of the Conference is to provide a forum to facilitate the exchange of knowledge and experience
