Largest International Meeting for the Study of Reproductive Biology Attracts Researchers from 36 Countries in Grand Rapids, Michigan
Date:7/15/2014

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich., July 15, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- More than 800 researchers from over 36 countries are expected to attend the 47th annual meeting of the Society for the Study of Reproduction (SSR) in Grand Rapids. This is the largest annual international meeting in the field of reproductive biology. The conference, held July 19-23 at Devos Place Convention Center, is dedicated to advancing the knowledge of the reproductive process in humans and animals, while also studying the impact of reproduction on the environment, wildlife biology and conservation, food production, human fertility and population growth.

"The Society for the Study of Reproduction chose Grand Rapids because of the pioneering research in women's heath being done at Michigan State University College of Human Medicine, right here in our city," explains Asgi Fazleabas, Ph.D., local arrangements committee chair for the SSR.

This research has been made possible, in part, by nearly $8 million in national grants to Grand Rapids institutions last year. Researchers at MSU have used this funding to study benign and malignant gynecological diseases, which will help discover new treatments and better understanding of proper ovarian function for reproduction. This research has significant implications for the treatment of infertility in humans and farm animals, as well as developing better diagnoses and treatments for gynecological diseases.

"I hope our fellow citizens will be proud that scientists are coming to Grand Rapids from around the globe," says Fazleabas. "We are excited to welcome them to
