8th – 11th SEPTEMBER 2015

In 2015, IFPA will be hosted by the ANZPRA and the University of Queensland’s Centre for Clinical Research, Brisbane, Australia.

An Invitation to Participate

Placentology is evolving rapidly: our understanding of the molecular, cellular and epigenetic mechanisms underlying normal placental development and placental pathophysiology is increasing rapidly and the opportunities for prediction, prevention and treatment of these conditions are likewise expanding.

We invite you to join us for the  International Federation of Placenta Associations meeting in Brisbane, Queensland, Australia, 8th -11th September 2015. The meeting will provide an update on our understanding of the mechanisms underlying placental development and the impact of dysfunctional placentation on fetal development and the subsequent disease risk profile of the offspring . The significant advances made in our understanding of the aetiology of complications of pregnancy and early detection of placental dysfunction will be delineated. Featured in the program are new opportunities to take part in sessions directed at strategic planning for translational research and clinical practice.

Brisbane, Queensland’s capital is a young and vibrant city that typically enjoys blue sunny skies during the winter months. The city’s industries are focused on the development and application of new technologies, synonymous with the changes occurring in placentology at this time. Brisbane is the gateway to five world heritage sites including the Great Barrier Reef, Fraser Island, the Riversleigh Fossil site, and pristine sub-tropical and tropical rainforests. We hope you will be able to spend a few extra days visiting these areas of outstanding natural beauty as part of your trip to Australia.
