Support our foundation.
The Foundation for Reproductive Medicine (FRM) is a not-for-profit organization. Our mission is to help families grow by supporting original research and post-graduate medical education in reproductive medicine, with special emphasis in reproductive endocrinology and infertility.
Due to the global COVID-19 pandemic, we were forced to make the difficult decision to cancel the annual FRM Conference on Translational Reproductive Biology and Clinical Reproductive Endocrinology for the year 2020. Many scientific conferences converted to online meetings in this difficult year, but we decided to cancel the event altogether, because we felt that the most important goal of the FRM Conference--to foster collaboration between basic scientists and clinicians in an intimate setting--cannot be achieved online.
A tentative date for the Conference has been set for November 18-21, 2021, the weekend before Thanksgiving per our tradition. We sincerely hope to see you then in New York City.
In accordance with our mission, FRM issues research grants to investigators pursuing research projects with promising clinical applicability in reproductive medicine and biology. FRM also supports monthly Reproductive Medicine GrandRounds in New York City, jointly with Center for Human Reproduction. A complimentary continuing medical education event, GrandRounds present up-to-date scientific presentation by leading experts in reproductive medicine and sciences to physicians and scientists.
FRM's research and educational support offers much-needed funds to advance the horizons of what is possible in basic reproductive biology and clinical reproductive medicine, and for the dissemination of newly developed knowledge. With FMR support, investigators have introduced many innovative new treatments, now used all over the world, to help couples struggling with infertility, and have been able to disseminate their knowledge worldwide. Treatments that were inconceivable only 10 years ago are now possible and utilized in daily practice all around the world.
