Second plenary face to face meeting at Monash University - Nov 25-28
For many of us, it was an exciting venture flying halfway around the world to meet our partners at their home, in Australia.
We had a productive conference filled with project presentations, discussions and workshops as well as some highlights in between:
The keynote lecture of our invited speaker Jon Oatley from Washington State University for example or the exclusive YouTube message for our students sent by Prof. Joseph Penninger, scientific director of IMBA (Institute of Molecular Biotechnology, Vienna, Austria).
On Nov 28, our Monash partner had invited clinicians to a Men's Health Symposium, a supplementary platform for scientific exchange on reproduction.
All in all, we spent some very intensive days together. Thanks again!

at Monash University Prato Centre, Prato, Italy - May 08 - 10
IRTG members from Monash and JLU finally came together in Prato. For many it was the first possibility to get to know each other. It turned out a very fruitful and lively conference, bringing up new ideas and intensified cooperation within each project and among the different projects. Further, the participants could benefit from several workshops, e.g. career development for the doctoral students and supervision development for supervisors.
The fascinating location (Palazzo Vaj) and the beautiful weather put the icing on the cake, so we had some really productive and enjoyable days!
