Dr. Janice Evans, professor in the department of biochemistry and molecular biology at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, has been elected president of the Society for the Study of Reproduction. Her term in the presidential chain started July 2016 as vice president-elect, and her presidential year begins in July and runs through July 2019. In addition to leading the Society through strategic plans initiated in early 2018, she will oversee the planning for the July 2019 meeting, “Beyond Possible: Remarkable Transformation of Reproductive Biology,” which will take place in San Jose.
The mission of the 1500-member Society for the Study of Reproduction is to advance scientific knowledge by promoting outstanding research and training in reproductive sciences and to protect and preserve human and animal reproductive health.
