Welcome Message

Dear friends & colleagues,

After the first Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART) workshop in May 2006 in Gleneagles Hospital, Singapore, there have been many requests for a continuation of this ART workshop series, first organized by us in the National University of Singapore in the 1990¡¯s. After a break of 1 year, during which there has been major changes in the pharmaceutical scene (Serono is now Merck-Serono; and Organon is now part of Schering-Plough), we have re-initiated the workshop series. The next ART workshop will be from June 5 to 7, 2008, in unique Singapore.

In continuing with the tradition of introducing new practitioners to the field as well as updating practicing doctors and embryologists, this 2008 workshop will have two components stretched over 2 ½ days: lectures in the mornings of the first 2 days and Hands-On for practical exposure for the remaining sessions.

In addition to the educational content of this workshop, there is also the charm of our unique multicultural society. June is also the month of the ¡°Great Singapore Sale¡± when there are great savings in this shopping paradise.

So, I warmly welcome you to this meeting.
