Endometrium and embryo implantation: the hidden frontier
Lyon, France
September 24 - September 25, 2010

Implantation is a complex process that requires the orchestration of a series of events involving both the embryo and the endometrium. Due to the complexity of the mechanisms involved and relative lack of information on some of them, it has been defined 'black box' of assisted reproduction. Even with the transfer of high quality embryos implantation rates still remain relatively low, thus failure of implantation is a major factor which influences negatively ART outcomes. Recently, thanks to the new research tools such as molecular biology, genetics and metabolomics, the implantation process becomes increasingly clear and this will soon provide solutions to improve outcomes. Aim of this event is therefore to review all these scientific attainments starting from the physiology of embryo and endometrium to the mechanisms of implantation in stimulated cycles, till the diagnostic techniques for predicting implantation. An overview on present and future tools to improve implantation process will be provided.

Learning objectives
This Workshop will offer to participants the possibility to:

  • Get an exhaustive overview of embryo-endometrium interaction
  • Acquire the latest updates on mechanisms of endometrial receptivity in stimulated cycles
  • Be updated on present and future solutions to improve implantation in ART

Target audience
This program is targeted to clinicians and scientists working on Assisted Reproduction Techniques.
