What’s on?

The British Undergraduate Society of Obstetrics and Gynaecology hosts a number of events throughout the academic year which cater to the needs of its members. The primary objective of all our events is to enthuse fellow students about Obstetrics and Gynaecology, whether the event is a conference day when students present original pieces of research, or PACES/OSCE revision days where students can brush-up their practical skills for upcoming exams.

We will be updating our calendar on a regular basis to include events of every format including conferences, lectures, seminars, presentations, competitions, revision sessions and more. Please ensure you are registered as a member, as priority will be given to members when event bookings take place.

We will also be advertising events from other organisations in partnership with BUSOG.

KEY NOTE SPEAKER- PROF. MOFFET
We are incredibly honoured to be joined by Professor Moffet, Professor of Reproductive Immunology at the University of Cambridge and Fellow ad eundum of the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists

“Over the last 25 years Professor Moffett has been one of the world’s leading researchers into understanding the immunology of trophoblast invasion and its role in placentation.
Her groundbreaking research has been published by Nature, describing how the human immune system has evolved to meet these challenges: the need to fight infections, but also the need to be able to reproduce.

The research undertaken by Professor Moffett into the maternal uterine immune system has been crucial in the understanding of the process of placentation. The classic schemas that she has published on trophoblast invasion are used as the standard description by all workers in the field and her graphics are a mainstay of all presentations on the subject. Her pioneering work on the genetic influences in both maternal and fetal immunological expression and response and has been cited many hundreds of times and is in the top 1% of cited publications in reproductive science.

Professor Moffett’s work has led to trials in therapeutic intervention
and given hope to the many thousands of women who suffer miscarriage and placental pathology in pregnancy.” (www.rcog.co.uk)
