Society of Reproductive Investigation (SRI)

66th Annual Scientific Meeting, March 12 - 16, 2019

Connection Corners

Connection Corners is an event for trainees, established in 2013 at the annual Society for Reproductive Investigation (SRI) meeting. During this event, accomplished senior members are invited to host discussions at tables with topics that are relatable and of interest to attendees at diverse stages in their careers. These open-ended “chats” provide a casual environment to interact, and facilitate networking between meeting attendees, especially amongst trainees.
