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.
