Greetings form the new Executive Team 2016-18 of the Indian Fertility Society!
It is absolutely wonderful to see the IFS grown from a tiny plumule to an unbelievable strength of more than 1600 members now! This has been possible only due to the exemplary efforts of our predecessors and enormous support from each one of you. It is with great humility and a deep sense of responsibility that my team takes over the baton! Let us remind ourselves about the fundamental aims of our society, which is to “disseminate basic and advanced knowledge, stimulate research and encourage best clinical practices in the field of infertility and reproductive medicine”. As you would notice, our current team is a wonderful kaleidoscope of outstanding colleagues who are not just the renounced experts on the subject but they are also well known for their passion and dedication for teaching and academic excellence. We together, with the valuable suggestions and support from each one of you, look forward to taking IFS to the next pedestal!
This year we specifically wish to focus on the Basic Fundamental Research and reliable Data Collection in an attempt to establish the normal and abnormal values for various tests and parameters across different states and country as a whole. Those of you interested to actively participate, kindly write to us latest by 15 May at [email protected] with a copy to the undersigned. Kindly send us a brief project / synopsis of the proposed topics. The IFS secretariat will obtain the ethical approval on selected topics and it will also try to provide help in collecting necessary funds.
I am sure, you all are very much aware of the biggest event this year, which is the 22nd World Congress of IFFS (International Federation of Fertility Societies) to be held on 21-25 September 2016 at India Expo Centre, Greater Noida, Delhi NCR, hosted by the joint efforts of ISAR & IFS. The last date for reduced registration is approaching fast. You just cannot miss out on this unique opportunity! For those who have still not registered, I request you to register immediately and be a part of this world class event.
Looking forward to receiving your feedbacks
With warm regards
Dr Sohani Verma
