SWES 2024 Conference

The Southwest Embryology Summit invites you to join us for our 13th annual conference.

The SWES Objective

Welcome to The Southwest Embryology Summit!

The mission of the Southwest Embryology Summit is to provide low-cost educational opportunities for all embryologists.

In order to achieve this goal SWES will organize, at a minimum, one educational conference a year. Any working embryologist or professional in an associated field may attend. These meetings will provide an interactive discussion of basic biology and applied clinical science related to the fields of IVF and andrology, but there should always be some discussions for novice embryologists/andrologists. These discussions shall encourage interaction of novice embryolgists/andrologists in a cooperative, non-judgmental environment.
