WCM faculty, residents and fellows traveled to Salt Lake City, Utah, on October 15-19 to present their innovative research to thousands of their peers at the annual conference of the American Society for Reproductive Medicine (ASRM). In recognition of the excellence of their work, they were awarded much sought-after opportunities for oral and poster presentations and brought home several prizes.
Among the highlights from the Urology department:
- Dr. Darius Paduch and his team were awarded the Society for Male Reproduction and Urology Prize Paper for the most important submission in male reproduction. The paper outlined a new method to identify and select sperm in specimens from testes after traditional approaches had failed.
- Drs. Peter Schlegel and Marc Goldstein received the 2016 ASRM Star Award, recognizing members who have presented during at least nine of the ASRM Annual Meetings from 2006-2015.
- Drs. Philip S. Li and Marc Goldstein received honorable mention for their urology video, “Importance of Male Infertility Microsurgery Training.”
