    Biographical note

    The Society for Reproduction and Fertility (SRF) was established to promote research in reproduction and to disseminate information to the public at large. The Society was formed in July 2001 through amalgamation of the Society for the Study of Fertility (SSF) and the Journals of Reproduction and Fertility Ltd (JRF). The SRF carries forward the long standing heritage of the SSF/JRF in being one of the principal scientific societies specialising in reproductive biology, both within the UK and internationally.

    The Society's principal aim is to support research and teaching in all aspects of reproductive biology by:

  • Supporting and organizing at least one substantial scientific meeting per year
  • Producing a monthly journal, or journals publishing top quality papers in reproductive biology
  • Providing financial assistance for members to attend SRF meetings, and other meetings as appropriate, through the provision of travel grants
  • Publishing proceedings of meetings or symposia as supplements
  • Honouring the contribution of its members to research in the fields of reproduction and fertility by conferring a variety of medals and awards
