India with its ever exploding population of 1.2 Bn and ticking also encounters a major problem of infertility and it is quite paradox that a country with large amount of population also has its share of infertility.
Assisted Reproductive Technologies (ARTs) which encompass procedures ranging from relatively simple Intra Uterine Insemination (IUI), IVF, ICSI, IMSI, Cryopreservation and Vitrification. With the estimated number of clinics in India is almost 700+ and an ever increasing rate has put India on the world IVF map.
In the past 2 decades, the field of Embryology and Assisted Human Reproduction has witnessed monumental progress and expansion. The rapid advances and new discoveries in these fields are touching the sky. There is a growing gap between the enormous amount of knowledge and technology generated daily in the field and the dissemination of these to the laboratory professionals.
With these thoughts in mind, the goal of the very first International Embryology Summit or IES'12 organized by the India's topmost Embryology Academy (the Embryology Academy for Research and Training or EART) and the prestigious American "Center for Reproductive Medicine or CRM"; is to share the latest know-how about the sophisticated ART techniques, best practices and equipments used and available in the world.
The technological advances in the field of ART are pushing the envelope by giving the reproductive laboratory professionals unsurpassed options to further improve the outcome of their patients. The Embryology Academy brings you extensive 12 days long comprehensive hands on teaching and learning with 2 workshops and 6 training modules.
Each workshop module will be headed by an International Celebrity Embryologist (from Europe, United States and supported by 40 renowned Indian Embryologist), hand picked for their excellence and expertise in specific ART related technologies.
