Conference This conference draws together an internationally-renowned faculty to offer the most advanced developments in every phase of IVF and embryo management and discusses the needs of practicing scientists, gynecologists, reproductive endocrinologists, residents, and fellows who wish to review the specialty and update their knowledge in this rapidly changing and expanding field. Particular attention will be dedicated this year to the swiftly advancing trend toward deferred embryo transfer, stimulation procedures for the poor responder and the role of mild ovarian stimulation, optimization of embryo culture, the roles of embryo energy supplies, and Co-Q10 in improving mitochondrial function in aging women, difficult cases with ICSI, the critical significance of single embryo transfer in maximizing perinatal outcomes, genetic evaluation of the infertile couple and early pregnancy, management of mosaic embryos, maternal immunogenetics, and practical aspects of transfer technique. A laboratory mini-symposium directed by Dr. William Schoolcraft will include cryostorage safety, chromosomal screening without embryo biopsy, progressing embryo quality and minimizing aneuploidy, applications of artificial intelligence in the lab, and mechanisms of embryo self-correction. ,Highlighted Topics: • Dr. Antonio Pellicer, Professor of Obstetrics and Gynecology, University of Valencia, Spain, Founder, Instituto Valenciano de Infertilidad (IVI), and co-editor of Fertility and Sterility, will explain the developing techniques to awaken oocytes in women with ovarian failure. • Catherine Racowsky, Ph.D., professor of Obstetrics and Gynecology at Harvard Medical School in Boston and current ASRM president will deliver a keynote lecture titled "Noninvasive preimplantation genetic testing for aneuploidy in spent medium may be more reliable than trophectoderm biopsy". • Juan Carlos Izpisua Belmonte, Ph.D., from the Salk Institute, will give a keynote lecture titled “Precise in vivo genome editing for genetic disease correction: the world is on the brink of revolutionary treatments for inherited diseases.” ,This year, our conference setting will develop extensive contact among speakers and participants with question periods, panels, and many opportunities for informal interaction and allow for interaction with numerous exhibitors while enjoying breakfast and refreshments. ,In addition, a mobile app will be employed to access the material being presented, and electronic polling through the mobile app will be used to promote interaction with the speakers. ,Conference Objectives At the conclusion of this onsite CME course, attendees should be able to: • Define standard, successful procedures of every element of the clinical practice of support with the reproductive technology and in particular the very notable advantages of deferred embryo transfer have been made possible through vitrification; alternatives to full stimulation; prevention of OHSS; the role of health and lifestyle concerns in the male and female; time-lapse monitoring of embryos; aging of the oocyte; management of mosaicism with extensive chromosome screening; optimal hormone replacement for embryo transfer; and critical aspects of embryo transfer technique. • Express the aspects of embryo culture and embryo manipulation and management to achieve optimal results with IVF. • Recognize the options for fertility preservation for the woman with cancer, and immunologic aspects of implantation.
