In mid-March, reproductive endocrinologists, embryologists, and other fertility experts met in Palm Springs for the 66th Annual Meeting of the Pacific Coast Reproductive Society (PCRS). Here is a brief overview of a few topics covered by presenters at the meeting.

Protecting Babies from Zika

At the PCRS Annual Meeting, Gabriela Paz-Bailey, MD, MS, PhD, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), updated attendees about an ongoing public health crisis: Zika infection. In Puerto Rico, Dr. Paz-Bailey and colleagues have been tracking the behavior of the Zika virus (ZIKV) in women and men of reproductive age—a critical field of study given the devastating impact this emerging flavivirus can have on offspring.
