Postgraduate Interdisciplinary Conference on Fertility, Pregnancy & Development

Funded by the University Graduate College

Thursday 23rd May, 13:45 – 17:30

Cardiff University Graduate Centre, Room 3.19


The network aims to highlight research being carried out by postgraduate students at any university within subject areas related to fertility, pregnancy and development, with an emphasis on promoting collaboration between academic schools and universities.

The network will provide the opportunity to establish research contacts, to gain an understanding of other research techniques used to study these subject areas and to create better communication between lab and hospital based research groups in order to encourage high quality translational research. Additionally, there will be opportunities for members to present and receive feedback on their research in a friendly environment.

A detailed programme of speakers will be available closer to the date. For more information, please see our webpage:

Attendance at the meeting is free, but registration is required. To reserve your place at the meeting or for general enquiries please email

The conference will be aimed at postgraduates from Cardiff University. Currently, there are a number of schools conducting research within fertility, pregnancy and development including School of Biosciences, Medicine, Psychology and Nursing & Midwifery Studies. Both those currently researching or with an interest in one or more of the subject areas are invited to attend.

In order to foster inter-university links, funding is also available to invite two external postgraduate speakers from neighbouring universities with an interest in one of the subject areas.
