We're delighted that Professor Stacey Missmer, Professor of Obstetrics, Gynaecology, and Reproductive Biology at Michigan State University and Scientific Director, Boston Centre for Endometriosis will be joining us to deliver a keynote address, as well as leading researchers in areas such as genetics, pain management and fertility.

Organised in conjunction with World Endometriosis Research Foundation and the World Endometriosis Society, we will be joined for the day by top researcher from across the UK and a key note speaker all the way from America - Stacey Missmer, Professor of Obstetrics, Gynaecology and Reproductive Biology at Michigan State University and Scientific Director, Boston Centre for Endometriosis, who will be guiding us through the challenges and direction of endometriosis research in the future.
