Attendance to the 20th Annual Conference of the European Society for Domestic Animal Reproduction (ESDAR) and 13th Conference of the Spanish Association for Animal Reproduction (AERA)

We are just back from the ESDAR/AERA joint meeting in Lisbon, Portugal. The group contributed with 7 posters, most of them in collaboration with other research groups or private companies from Extremadura, León, Madrid or Zaragoza. The abstracts have been published in the Supplement 1 of Volume 52 of the Reproduction in Domestic Animals journal:

Contributions to the International Congress on Animal Reproduction

Last June, we attended the 18th International Congress on Animal Reproduction (ICAR). This meeting congregated researchers and practicioners on animal reproduction all around the world, with sessions and workshops from the 26th to the 30th June. It was a wonderful ocassion to present some of our newest findings, discuss them with renowed experts and meet colleagues and friends.

The congress took place in Tours, a beautiful city in the Loire Valley.

We contributed with four poster communications:

Balmori-Roiz, T A, Fernández-Alegre, E, Casao, A, Cebrián-Pérez, J A, Martínez-Pastor, F. The localization of melatonin receptors MT1 and MT2 on the bull sperm membrane changes after incubation in capacitating and non-capacitating conditions.

del Olmo, E, Urbano, M, Martínez-Pastor, F, Iniesta-Cuerda, M, García-Alvarez, O, Maroto-Morales, A, Soler, A J, Johannisson, A, Morrell, J M, Garde, J J, Fernández-Santos, M R. Estrous sheep serum reduces spermatozoa mitochondrial ROS production during in vitro procedures.

Justel, V, Gutiérrez-Díaz, I, Fernández-Alegre, E, Alonso, M E, Fernández-Rodríguez, V, Rodríguez-Gutiérrez, P, Johannisson, A, Morrell, J M, Martínez-Pastor, F. Abundance of disulphide bridges in the head of bull spermatozoa is related to male fertility and SCSA variables.

Castañeda, A, Crespo-Félez, I, Fernández-Alegre, E, González, R, Domínguez, J C, Morrell, J M, Martínez-Pastor, F. Effect of Single Layer Centrifugation (SLC) with different proportions of Androcoll-P (70%, 80% and 90%) in the recovery and quality of cryopreserved boar semen.

Already looking for the 2020 meeting in Bologna!
