CTR Conference Monday 9th July and Tuesday 10th July 2018

The CTR Annual Trophoblast (CAT) Meeting is aimed at scientists and academic clinicians with an interest in placental research.

The 2018 Meeting will take place on Monday 9th and Tuesday 10th July 2018.

Online registration now open through the Cambridge University conference booking system at the following address:
