Prof. Dr. György Bártfai - president of the Foundation

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

It is a great honour and a particular privilege for us to extend a most cordial welcome to the Fifth Meeting of the Egon and Ann Diczfalusy Foundation in Szeged. We are proud to present the Programme which is dedicated to Reproductive Health-care. This year the Conference has been incorporated as part of the prestigious Albert Szent-Györgyi Days of the University of Szeged.

The Foundation, established in 2007 by the world famous reproductive endocrinologist professor Egon Diczfalusy and dedicated also to his late wife Ann, aims at disseminating knowledge and supporting scientific work conducted in the field of Reproductive Health. Each year it awards a Prize to a young investigator and a Medal to a senior scientist for his/ her life-time achievements.

During the Conference several importanttopics will be discussed by well known international experts, ranging from oral progestins and venous thromboembolism, impact of obesity on Women's Health, long-acting contraceptive agents and recent advance in perinatology.

For the first time in the history of the Diczfalusy Award Lecture, a series of hands-on training will be held in the framework of parallel sessions about The risk ofthromboembolism among obese patients, Application of Intrauterine device, Intrauterine System and Implants and Practical aspects of resuscitation and treatment of high risk neonates.

We are confident that you will find your interest among the topics of the Conference and welcome you and wish all of you a most pleasant stay in Szeged, Hungary!
