World Congress of Reproductive Biology 2014

Welcome to the website for the 2014 World Congress of Reproductive Biology.

Building on the success of the preceding congresses, hosted by the Society for the Study of Reproduction (SSR) in Kona, Hawaii (2008) and by the Society for Reproductive Biology (SRB) in Cairns, Australia (2011), WCRB 2014 was hosted by the Society for Reproduction and Fertility (SRF). 

WCRB 2014 took place in Edinburgh, Scotland on September 2nd to 4th 2014 and over 400 delegates were in attendance.

The World Congress of Reproductive Biology was established in 2008 to provide a forum for basic and clinical reproductive biologists from all around the globe to meet and exchange cutting edge ideas and research findings.  The 2014 Congress is being organised by 6 international societies in partnership: the CSRB, KSAR, SRB, SRD and SSR (based in China, Korea, Australia, Japan and the USA, respectively), with the Society for Reproduction & Fertility (SRF) honoured to host WCRB 2014 in Edinburgh, Scotland.
