Die Veranstaltung wurde von der Ärztekammer geprüft, sodass wir für beide Kongresstage 12 Fortbildungspunkte ausstellen können.
Following the success of previous years’ joint collaboration with the Ovarian Club (OC), the 2019 CoGEN Congress will also take place in conjunction with the Ovarian Club Meeting. Participants registered to one of these meetings will be granted full access to both meetings.
“Why should I attend?”
COGEN focuses on Innovation in Preconception, Preimplantation and Prenatal Genetic Diagnosis, including:
Pre-Congress Courses on Basic Genetic Principles for the Non-Geneticists
Basic research on oocyte aging and the origin of aneuploidy
The use of Next Generation Sequencing for expanded preconception carrier screening
Novel strategies for Non-Invasive Prenatal Testing (NIPT) and Non-invasive Prenatal Diagnosis (NIPD)
The use of Whole Exome/Genome Sequencing (WES/WGS) in the evaluation of the malformed fetus
Preimplantation Genetic Testing for Aneuploidy (PGT-A) for detection of chromosome copy number abnormalities in human embryos and oocytes
Preimplantation Genetic Testing for monogenic disorders (PGT-M) and structural rearrangements (PGT-SR)
Genetic factors in implantation
The Faculty: World-renowned scientists and physicians in the field.
The COGEN Congress is a unique educational opportunity for practitioners in the field of human procreation to conduct discussions and network with leading experts.
The CoGEN Congress is a part of the Virtual Academy of Genetics (VAoGEN), whose mission is to disseminate educational material on Reproductive Genetics to healthcare providers around the world and to provide a forum for the exchange of knowledge and ideas.
During the last two decades, Fertility Preservation has gained an important role in medicine and clinical patient care and is now at the forefront of medical and basic research in human reproduction.
Fertility Preservation engages multidisciplinary fields of reproductive medicine, oncology, hematology, embryology, andrology, ovary, testis and gamete research, toxicology, psychology, and includes not only scientific researchers and physicians, but also social workers and nurses. All in a united effort to improve the quality of life of young cancer survivors, as well as the quality of life of other patients seeking to postpone reproduction due to medical or non-medical conditions. As such, the demand for Fertility Preservation has dramatically increased.
The aims of this congress are to present and discuss clinical and up-to-date scientific developments in Fertility Preservation; to share protocols and clinical knowledge; to find areas for future multidisciplinary scientific research and clinical collaboration; to spread education and to facilitate Fertility Preservation awareness. This will be achieved by bringing together world leading fertility preservation experts, oncologists, scientists, physicians, embryologists, cryobiologists, nurses, and students as well as other individuals engaged in fertility preservation.
Over two-and-a-half days, based on most recent publications, the conference presents in a single room the year’s Who’s Who in reproductive biology and clinical reproductive medicine for an authoritative annual update on newly evolving paradigms in basic sciences and clinical medicine.
A conference like the FRMC, simply, does not exist anywhere else in the world, which is one reason why we have been welcoming hundreds of attendees from over 40 countries to New York City every year. By addressing clinicians and scientists as audience, FRMC offers both groups a unique and intimate framework for interactions and exchanges of ideas.
“Think differently”, from the beginning FRMC’s principal slogan, represents truly the essence of the program, and virtually guarantees attendees information they, likely will not be exposed to elsewhere until often years later.
As has been tradition, on Thursday afternoon preceding the start of the conference, FRMC-2019 will again offer pre-conference workshops which cover in depth important clinical or basic science subjects. These workshops take place in relatively small break-out rooms with only limited seating capacity. We, therefore, recommend early registration.
Every year the FRMC offers a truly stellar invited international faculty of unique breadth, expertise and knowledge, and we pride ourselves of having introduced many “rising starts,” who are now in much demand at other conferences. Invitations to join FRMC, therefore, have become highly coveted, which allows us to be highly selective in choosing speakers. Invited faculty not only must be excellent speakers but also must have something interesting to report.
We, in addition, again anticipate a significant scientific contribution from younger physicians and basic scientists and encourages them to submit abstracts. Those accepted, will be presented as posters, with lead authors of accepted abstracts (if under age 40) automatically eligible for discounted registration and a “Young Investigator Award” of up to $5,000. Accepted abstracts will be published in the Journal of Assisted Reproduction and Genetics (JARG) and, therefore, citable.
We are looking forward to welcoming you to New York City during the pre- Holiday Season – one of the most beautiful periods of the year. There is no better time and place for “shopping” for knowledge!
