The 26th World Congress on Controversies in Obstetrics, Gynecology & Infertility (COGI)


Welcome from Chairs


Dear Colleagues,

The 26th World Congress on Controversies in Obstetrics, Gynecology and Infertility (COGI) and RBMOnline will be celebrating 40 years of IVF in London, UK, November 23-25, 2018.  

World renowned leaders in the field, both past and present, will review advances and breakthroughs via stories, history, debates, controversies and round table discussions. There will be critical reviews of where we came from and predictions for where we are heading. Highlights will include the “Robert G Edwards Nobel Prize Laureate” lecture, newly conceived “countercurrent” lectures by leading experts, as well as an inspiring fetomaternal medicine program and its relationship to IVF, sessions on early prenatal diagnosis, pregnancy support, age-related risks, nutrition, the epidemic of multiple pregnancies, gynecological infertility-related diseases, and more. As always, there will be ample time in every session for speaker-audience discussions.

Mark your calendar for this mix of superb science combined with all that the culturally vibrant city of London has to offer. We look forward to welcoming you to COGI 2018.
