Society for the Study of Reproduction Conference

Posted on July 27th 2017 in Blog, News

Sarah and Steve headed to a boiling Washington D.C (+40°C) on the 12-16th of July in order to present work from the SpermNMR project.

While there they had a look at the White house (only from the outside), saw the pandas conceived by assisted fertilisation in the zoo and had some great discussions about science.

Sarah had a talk on the Sunday discussing the differences between high and low quality sperm (surprisingly we have seen higher metabolite concentrations in the poor sperm).

Steve had a flash talk and presented a poster about how fast sperm can metabolise highly magnetised sugar (a technique called hyperpolarised) which got a lot of interest from scientists interested in new technologies.
