Welcome to the workshop in 2022 on:

As the pandemic is ongoing and still has to be taken seriously, making concrete plans for an on-site meeting remains highly difficult. Considering the rapid progress in the field of reproductive genetics, we however feel, that scientific exchange formats are needed more than ever. We therefore have decided to set up an Workshop on the 'Genetic Landscape of Reproductive Health' which implements a novel format in which recent advances in the genetics of reproduction and the genome will be presented and discussed in a condensed workshop format of approximately 4 hours, but still including components of a classical on-site workshop/congress such as main lectures, short presentations, and roundtable discussions. The audience will resemble researchers from Europe and beyond. This workshop will be organized by the Clinical Research Unit (CRU) 'Male Germ Cells-from genes to function', which consists of a bunch of projects on different aspects of germ cell function e.g. from the genetic of male infertility to testicular organoids conducted by several institutions and financed by the German Research foundation. For more information on our work please visit our homepage.

Renowned national as well as international experts have been invited, covering the underlying mechanisms of the changing genome and the impact of genetic alterations on germ cells, fertility and progeny health. We hope that will find our concept convincing and that you will attend our workshop which is free of any charges.

Best wishes Jörg Gromoll and Frank Tüttelmann
