I am happy to announce the results of the survey for embryologist day.

First I want to express my deepest appreciation to Dr. James Stanger who compiled and managed the survey.
A comprehensive summary of the voting results as well as the numerous comments and suggestions can be viewed at the following link:


Here are the results and the total percentage votes for each:

Name: World Embryologist Day (the plural s was dropped to make it easier to pronounce) (43.75%)

Date: July 25, Louise Brown's birthday (43.71%)

Celebrated by: All who work in IVF (48.76%)

How to celebrate: Clinic celebrations (lunch, drinks, gifts) where the clinics recognize the value of the scientific staff.

So, I will be looking forward to celebrating this day with all or you in the future.
We are communicating with ASRM and ESHRE about having some special events on the day and we will keep you posted.

Thanks again for your participation!
