RRM Research Updates: Hormonal monitoring of the menstrual cycle, with comparison to ultrasound

Presented by Professor Leonard F. Blackwell, Massey University, New Zealand, Dr. Blackwell was trained in organic chemistry, biochemistry and reproductive physiology. He studied under Professor James Brown at the University of Melbourne in the physiology of ovulation and in the development of the Fertility Meter, a device for monitoring ovarian activity in all its manifestations and one of the only true quantitative point-of-care devices in existence.  For the past 36 years, Len was involved in the research and development of urinary assays as point-of-care diagnostic kits and recently with quantitative immune-chromatographic assays. Sadly, Dr. Blackford passed away in late 2020.

North American Virtual Conference for RRM 2020

Access to recordings and slides from this year's North American Conference and Annual meeting for RRM are now available. Held on July 22, 2020 "virtually", we are grateful to everyone—including the attendees, speakers, and facilitators—who made the conference a success. We heard from Amy Beckley, PhD, on the power of testing progesterone urine metabolites, Dr. Patrick Yeung on endometriosis adhesion prevention, and Dr. Joe Stanford on STORRM as well as a number of new RRM research abstracts. While we couldn't meet physically we enjoyed the opportunity to see everyone virtually. Conference attendees receive free access to recordings and slides.
