Welcome Messages

Dear honoured guests, colleagues and friends,

We went through the rough patch with COVID and I know that most of you have done well, and without consequences. Thus it is our honour and pleasure to welcome you back to Hong Kong for another version of our annual conference, the Ovarian Club Asia, back to a physical and face to face meeting.

We had planned to present up to date material which will impact our practice. We tried to correlate science with clinical applications, and to report some yet to come technology viz robotic manipulation in the embryology laboratory. I hope that it will again whet your curiosity, and drive your imagination to a new horizon.

Last but not least, I look forward to seeing you again, and to reintroducing Hong Kong, a city faced with so many false media attacks, and wish that you will find her still as attractive and enjoyable.

Have a wonderful time, and enjoy the lectures, ask questions, and keep an open vision.

Yours sincerely, 


Milton LEONG

On behalf of the Organizing Committee
Ovarian Club (Asia)

 


 

Welcome to Ovarian Club (Asia) 2023 – After COVID: Back to the Future! 

The Organizing Committee is thrilled to invite you to the Ovarian Club (Asia) 2023, scheduled on December 16-17, 2023, at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre. This year's theme, "After COVID: Back to the Future," encapsulates our collective journey as we emerge from the challenges of the pandemic and forge ahead towards a brighter future. 

In keeping with our commitment to showcasing cutting-edge scientific developments and their practical applications in clinical settings, we will focus on the evolving landscape of reproductive medicine and their implications for the future of reproductive medicine. Our discussion will delve into the latest advancements and innovative research that will shape the way we approach fertility treatments in this new era. 

As always, we strive to showcase an outstanding selection of esteemed speakers and intriguing topics. Program highlights will encompass reproductive genetics, fertility preservation, investigating the potential for modulating ovarian aging, and bridging the gap between basic science and clinical practice. 

We are deeply grateful for your ongoing support and eagerly anticipate sharing an enjoyable, educational, and inspiring experience with you in Hong Kong as we embark on this journey together, "Back to the Future."
