SRS Keynote Lecture: From Glowing Penis to Oocyte-Producing Testis: The Power of Mouse Genetics on the Understanding of Human Reproductive Biology and Diseases
Disorders of sex development, or birth defects of reproductive organs, affect about one in 4,000 babies. Familial studies and the advancement of genomic sequencing have helped scientists and clinicians identify potential genetic components of these disorders; however, pinpointing the exact underlying causes of the defects remains a challenge. This lecture will highlight the power of mouse genetics that enable us to not only understand the basic biology of male reproduction, but also provide potential candidates for human disorders of sex development.

MHPG Clinical Session: Researching ART Families: Past, Present and Future Challenges
This session will explore the tasks and challenges associated with conducting psychosocial research by examining a program of research related to the impact of new family forms on parenting and child development. The talk will focus on the major decision points of the research process, including study design, recruitment, and analysis, and will explore the pros and cons associated with the various options at each stage. The overarching goal of the session will be to provide a roadmap to the research process and highlight the considerations involved in utilizing different types of research methods.
