3rd Oceania Transgenic and Assisted Reproductive Technologies (TART) Meeting

3rd Oceania Transgenic and Assisted Reproduction Technologies (TART) Symposium

University of New South Wales (UNSW), Sydney – Australia     23-24 November, 2017

This year, we were thrilled to host the 3rd Oceania mouse TART symposium at the University of New South Wales (UNSW) in Sydney. The organising committee (Fabien Delerue - UNSW, Irma Villaflor - CMRI, Elizabeth Williams - UQBR and Karen Brennan - VCCRI) wishes to thank all participants and attendees, for what was certainly an unprecedented success. We totalled an unexpected 143 registrations; several attendees came from overseas (e.g. New-Zealand, Japan, USA, France, Spain) to listen to 27 speakers and browse through 14 posters over 2 days, illustrating the incredible level of interest and commitment displayed during the entire symposium. Similarly, the level of support was outstanding with 29 sponsors, including 11 trade-displays. The committee would like to thank all sponsors (including the ISTT) for largely contributing to the success of the symposium.
