The conference will feature international speakers and will address a wide range of equine-related reproduction issues. Hosted by QF's Equine Veterinary Medical Center (EVMC), in partnership with Al Galayel Equine Center, the conference will take place at the Qatar National Conference Center (QNCC) and EVMC's state-of-the-art facility located in Al Shaqab.
Lectures will be delivered by keynote speakers known for their scientific contributions and professional experience in the field, including Dr Mats Troedsson, Dr Stefania Bucca and Dr Luis Losinno.
Lectures will be followed by a roundtable discussion on reproductive and neonatology topics of specific interest to the Middle East region. Topics for discussion at the conference include the pitfalls of breeding sub-fertile individuals, optimisation of embryo performance, identification of high-risk pregnancy, and neonatology.
A practical workshop will be held on the final day of the conference, covering embryo transfer, high-risk pregnancy, and neonatology. The participants will see the latest techniques in practice with live patients.
Dr Jessica Johnson, Acting Director of EVMC, said: 'We're delighted to welcome Qatar's equine community to this important conference with leading veterinarians in reproduction and neonatology. The lectures and discussions are very relevant to the reproduction issues facing horse owners here in Qatar and the region.
