Now in its 14th year, the Rocky Mountain Reproductive Sciences Symposium brings together a diverse group of scientists to discuss advances in both human and animal reproduction that deepen our understanding of reproductive physiology. It’s a one-day event focused on student training, not only to significantly improve communication and cross-fertilization of research ideas, but also to share resources and expertise across human and animal models.

The Rocky Mountain Reproductive Sciences Symposium is hosted virtually this year by the Animal Reproduction & Biotechnology Laboratory at Colorado State University, with grant and technical support from the Society for the Study of Reproduction.  The RMRS features student abstracts, platform presentations, poster sessions and two keynote lectures by leaders in the field of reproductive physiology. Attendees include post-baccalaureate trainees, faculty, private clinicians, and other research scientists. The symposium has led to the establishment of new collaborations between institutes to advance the field of reproductive sciences and is a great platform for student and fellow training.

RMRSS, a regional meeting focused on graduate student training, is supported by the Animal Reproduction and Biotechnology Laboratory, Department of Biomedical Sciences, College of Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Sciences, and Vice President for Research Office at Colorado State University.

The 2021 symposium was supported by:
