Nashville, TN June 28, 2022 – Ovation® Fertility scientists were invited to share three pieces of research at the ESHRE virtual 38th Annual Meeting. The event, hosted by the European Society of Human Reproduction and Embryology, takes place in Milan, Italy, July 3-6, 2022.
“The Ovation scientific team is once again honored to have been invited to present research at this prestigious international scientific conference,” says Ovation Vice President of Scientific Advancement Matthew “Tex” VerMilyea, PhD, HCLD/CC. “It is always an honor to be able to share our findings with IVF professionals from all over the world, and we always return home with new connections and greater knowledge to improve outcomes for the physicians and patients we serve.”
The Ovation delegation presented three poster presentations at the Milan event.
