IB will take 17 new lines of scientific progress to the Spanish Fertility Society's National Congress.

  • 18-05-2016

The 31st Spanish Fertility Society (SEF) National Congress will be held in Malagabetween the 19th and 21st May. It is one of reproductive medicine's most important events since it brings leading national experts together and the latest developments in the field are presented.


Instituto Bernabeu will be there to present 17 multidiscipline pieces of research work that have been accepted by the SEF scientific committee. These include 11 oral communications and 6 posters. The research was carried out in its entirety in IB as part of a commitment to scientific progress by all the experts who participate in each of the phases of reproduction treatment.


The team's involvement, both in patient healthcare and, in particular, in the use and research of new therapies and techniques which help to improve options of pregnancy with personalised treatment in each case, all translate into small steps forward (with particular emphasis on implantation failure or recurrent pregnancy loss and poor ovarian reserve) and which will be shared over the coming days.
