Dear Friends and Colleagues

January 2016 will see the next Annual Meeting of the BFS. The meeting is scheduled for the 7th – 8th January and will be hosted at the Sage Gateshead.

The theme of the meeting is ‘Gamete Formation, Preservation and Donation’

We have eminent speakers delivering the Howard Jacobs’ President’s Lecture and the Patrick Steptoe Lecture. As always, there will be opportunities to present original research papers and posters with awards for the Best Clinician, Scientist, and Nurse.

Designed by Lord Foster on a landmark waterfront site, the Sage Gateshead incorporates outstanding views of Newcastle. I am sure it will provide a superb venue for the BFS Annual Meeting 2016 and we look forward to welcoming you all in January.

Best wishes.
