It is an honor to welcome colleagues from around the world to the 7th International Conference on the Epididymis that will be held in Montreal from September 20 to 23, 2018.

The program reflects the cutting edge research that has been done on the epididymis, ranging from novel molecular studies on different types of RNAs to physiological, pharmacological and clinical aspects of our favorite tissue.

Leaders researching every facet of “the tissue” will be gathering in a fun and exciting city during the time of year when we are saying goodbye to summer and welcoming a wonderfully colourful fall season. Montreal is an easy city to navigate with an extensive metro/bus network. It is the site of four thriving universities and has been ranked in the QS Best Student Cities as number one in 2017. The meeting site is situated between “le vieux Montréal” and the thriving downtown core. Montreal boasts over 5000 restaurants from each corner of the globe, with some of the best chefs in the world.

We look forward to seeing you and sharing the remarkable advances being made in our understanding of the epididymis.
