Futures in Reproduction conference

  

Saturday 15th - Sunday 16th December 2012
 

The ambition of this meeting was to try and capture the far-sighted, wide-ranging and challenging spirit of enquiry that has characterized Bob Edwards’ career. The conference was not intended as a tribute meeting about Bob’s many past achievements precisely because we believe that a strong focus on the future, the exciting and the unconventional is the highest compliment that we can pay this remarkable man. Invited lecturers included both established authoritative figures and younger scientists.
