Welcome message

It is our great pleasure to announce the 11th NYRA Meeting, that will be held in Lisbon, Portugal, on May 22nd- 23rd 2018, preceding the 20th European Testis Workshop.

This time we will have exciting lectures by amazing speakers about Signalling pathways in Leydig cells, Spermatogonial Stem Cells and Spermatogenesis, as well as the hot-topic Germ-line gene editing.

If you want to learn how to improve your communication skills, you should also attend the workshop on Science communication and outreach. And if you want to get to know the other NYRA members better, you should definitely participate in our Young scientists speed date.
