Our aim

The main goal of this meeting is to provide insights into the main advances in the development, function, cellular aspects, signaling, molecular mechanisms, genetics, epigenetics and bioinformatics in the placenta and addressing the maternal-fetal interaction and other multidisciplinary issues and technical advances needed to improve the knowledge involved in sustaining pregnancy & outcomes in health and disease.
