Fertility is the main annual meeting in the UK which offers our SRF community the opportunity to meet under one roof and experience great science from leading experts and network. We invite you to join us and in Liverpool next January to be a part of Fertility 2018!


Over 100 SRF Members attended Fertility 2017 and feedback from all attendees, including SRF Members, was highly positive. Read reviews from two of our Early Career Members here. Additionally, a copy of the feedback from all participants is available to download below.

The Fertility 2018 programme is close to being finalised and whilst it is organised jointly by the SRF, the BFS and ACE our SRF Members will be pleased to learn that the programme incorporates the traditional features and characteristics which have been enjoyed over the years at the SRF Annual Conferences including:

In addition, the programme will include the first SRF – Reproduction Prize Session. Read more about this new prize here.

As well as a stimulating programme of concurrent sessions and workshops, the conference will include a large exhibition and poster display as well as an exciting programme of social events.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Fertility 2018 will take place at the ACC Liverpool, 4-6 January 2018. However, when planning your attendance, please note that the programme gets underway for SRF Members on the afternoon of Wednesday 3 January when the SRF Early Career Researcher Symposium, SRF Postdoctoral prize session & SRF-SRB Exchange Lecture and New Investigator Award lectures will take place.  These sessions will be followed by an informal SRF networking event.

SRF Bursaries will support (i) Registration, (ii) Accommodation and (iii) Travel for SRF delegates.

The bursary application system will open shortly.
