28th Symposium of Biology and Immunology of Reproduction

Chateau Liblice
1-3 October 2023

Address: Liblice 61, 277 32 Liblice, Czechia

Conference scope

SBIR (Symposium of Biology and Immunology of Reproduction) has been running for 25 years, under the management of doc. RNDr. Jana Pěknicová, CSc., and Prof. MUDr. Zdenka Ulčová-Gallová, DrSc. Since 2021 the conference is organized by doc. Dr. Kateřina Komrsková, Ph.D., head of the Laboratory of Reproductive Biology, Institute of Biotechnology of the Czech Academy of Sciences. The goal of the SBIR conference is to build a platform for researchers, medical doctors, immunologists, andrologists, gynaecologist, and other scientists interested in reproduction, assisted reproduction, and reproduction related topics. We provide a forum, where everybody can share their research progress and ideas in a collaborative and inclusive atmosphere. This conference is opened to researchers, both senior and junior, clinicians, and students. We encourage both oral presentations and poster sessions, based on your preference. The goal of the SBIR conference is to broaden both our national and international communities and expand knowledge in the biology and immunology of reproduction. Feel free to share this information with your friends, students, and colleagues.

Invited speakers

Ewa Rajpert-De Meyts, MD, PhD, DMSc

Title of the lecture: Testicular germ cell tumors: knowledge gaps concerning their origin, progression and the role of the immune system.

Senior research consultant at the Department of Growth & Reproduction of Copenhagen University Hospital (Rigshospitalet) in Copenhagen, Denmark.

Her research has been focused on the pathogenesis and diagnosis of testicular germ cancer and she is internationally recognised as one of the best experts in this field. She is also recognised in the field of reproductive pathobiology, especially the early development of human gonads, testicular dysgenesis syndrome, and in the area of genetics of male infertility.

In various rankings Dr. Rajpert-De Meyts is placed among the TOP 10 most productive and cited authors. She authored or co-authored more than 330 scientific articles, including high impact journals. In 2023 she received the Distinguished Andrologist Award from the American Society of Andrology.

Ana Katušić Bojanac, PhD

Title of the lecture: A crosstalk of DDR signalling and sex chromosomes in male meiosis.

Associate Professor and active researcher within the Scientific Centre of Excellence for Reproductive and Regenerative Medicine, Department of Medical Biology, School of Medicine University of Zagreb, Zagreb, Croatia.

Her research has been focused on the genetic and environmental background of infertility and testicular cancer in men, with the main interest in epigenetic mechanisms underlying the severity of histopathological changes observed in azoospermic testis.

Dr. Katusic Bojanac has over 50 publications. She is currently leading University Research Support project "Regulators of chromatin dynamics in male meiosis" (2022) and Croatian Science Foundation's project „Career development of young researchers“ (2019–2023).
