An unique, one-day event for researchers studying eggs for reproduction, stem cell derivation, or animal cloning to discuss their work.
In 2002, the Foundation launched The Activated Egg symposium series. With attendance limited to 100 the event provides a unique environment for investigators from academia, industry and infertility clinics to meet and form collaborations.
