ASRM 2015


This year, over 8,000 attendees and 200 exhibitors are excitedly preparing for the American Society of Reproductive (ASRM) Annual Meeting. The meeting will be in Baltimore, MD, October 17- 21.

If you’re attending the conference, you can find us at booth number 409. Our team will be ready to meet you, answer questions about our tests, and share how we are contributing to the field of Reproductive Medicine.

The Recombine team will share news of our original research in four presentations. We invite you to stop by our posters Tuesday, October 20th, 7:00-8:45 AM.

Genetic Influences on Endocrine Signaling in Women Female Reproductive Endocrinology

This study aimed to identify single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) impacting the hypothalamic-pituitary-ovarian axis, a critical signaling pathway in female reproduction, by exploring links between SNPs and baseline serum hormone levels in women referred from fertility centers.

Screen More or Screen Less? Carrier Screening in Gamete Donors: It’s Time for a New Paradigm

Carrier screening in gamete donors varies. We assessed carrier screening practices of varying scope and analyzed the number of donors identified as carriers. With this data, our goal is to propose a carrier screening protocol for gamete donors.

We also have two oral presentations that are sure to inspire important conversations.

How Many Carriers Are You Missing?: The Value of Expanded Carrier Screening (October 20, 11:15 AM – 12:45 PM)

Our aim was to determine the effectiveness of expanded panels in a clinical setting by comparing the percentage of carriers identified on carrier screening panels of increasing scope.

Do You Really Know Your Ethnicity? Comparing Self-Reported and Genetically Predicted Ethnicity: Clinical Implications (October 21, 11:15 AM – 12:45 PM)

As the genetic pool homogenizes people are less aware of, or less likely to identify with, a specific ethnicity. In this study, our goal was to investigate the accuracy of self-reported ethnicity as a basis for making clinical decisions.

In addition to these presentations, we along with Reprogenetics will host, Genomics in ART, an evening of complimentary cocktails, hors d’oeuvres, and networking at the stunning American Visionary Arts Museum. You can learn more about this event at
