Upper Midwest Summit for Reproductive Science

In 2023, the Northwestern University Center for Reproductive Science will host the first Upper Midwest Summit for Reproductive Science, an expansion of the Illinois Symposium on Reproductive Science. This annual symposium began in 2008, when a group of reproductive science faculty from across Illinois conceived of a trainee-focused meeting hosted by a rotation of Illinois universities including Northwestern, UIUC, UIC and Southern Illinois University (SIU). In 2023, the symposium expanded into the Upper Midwest Summit for Reproductive Science.  

This event convene trainees, junior and senior faculty, and other research staff and scientists from institutions across the upper Midwest region (Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan and Wisconsin) to:

  • Foster the exchange of scientific information in the reproductive sciences.
  • Facilitate the training and career development of future reproductive scientists.
  • Leverage the collective institutional strengths of participants to maintain the region as preeminent leaders in this critical research field.

This event offers graduate students, postdoctoral fellows and others in the reproductive sciences from across the Midwest region the opportunity to plan a meeting and present their research to peers, mentors, faculty and other scientists. A traditional and highly valued component of this event is the trainee committee who plan and organize many aspects of the meeting. The trainee committee includes members from across Illinois and the Midwest and promotes a regional peer and mentor network for our trainees.

Date: Monday-Tuesday, October 30-21
