Genetic Screening: Updates from ASRM

The American Society for Reproductive Medicine (ASRM) is a multidisciplinary professional organization devoted to the advancement of science and clinical practice of reproductive medicine, patient and provider education, and advocacy. Each year, ASRM members gather for a scientific meeting where researchers in the field present new findings. As members of ASRM, many of PFC’s staff have consistently attended and participated in the Annual Meeting, often making presentations and moderating sessions.

This year, a hot topic at the ASRM Annual Meeting in San Diego was comprehensive chromosome screening (CCS), a technique that allows screening of embryos for genetic problems prior to implantation previously known as preimplantation genetic screening (PGS). There were 27 presentations on CCS.
