Milestone Meeting Melbourne 2015

Second plenary face to face meeting at Monash University - Nov 25-28

Milestone Meeting MelbourneFor 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!
