Let’s talk about sperm: Sperm you can bank on

The Sex in Three Cities is an initiative run by the Society of Reproduction and Fertility(SRF). It takes place in London, Edinburgh and Nottingham each year, typically attracting over 400 people. One of the principle aims of the SRF is to enhance the knowledge of reproductive processes and fertility in humans and animals.

These highly acclaimed Sex in Three Cities free public lecture series are about to take place! Held between 27 February and 11 March 2020 in Nottingham, Edinburgh and London.

The 10th anniversary lecture of the Sex in 3 Cities series provides an opportunity to meet and hear Professor Allan Pacey. He is Professor of the Andrology Department and Head of the Department of Oncology and Metabolism at the University of Sheffield Medical School, UK.

Sperm you can bank on

Professor Pacey is a prominent figure in reproductive medicine, for which he received an MBE in 2016 for his services. He will present his lecture ‘Sperm you can bank on.’

Listen to Professor Pacey as he talks about:

  • What we know about sperm
  • How they work
  • Why it’s important to talk about them

His fascinating lecture will last one hour and be followed by an informal drink’s reception. This provides the chance to network and meet Professor Pacey himself.

The London leg of Sex in 3 Cities 2020 will be paired with the Royal Veterinary College’s ‘Night at the Vet College’, hosting exhibitors and will include a dissection demonstration. Tickets are limited for the lecture theatre and this evening is not to be missed!

This series forms part of SRF’s programme of bringing this knowledge to people interested in the field and to the public at large.

In 2020, the lectures take place on:

  • Thursday 27 February at 18.00, School of Veterinary Medicine and Science, Sutton Bonington Campus, University of Nottingham
  • Wednesday 4 March at 17.30, Queen’s Medical Research Institute (QMRI), University of Edinburgh
  • Wednesday 11 March at 17.00, at the Royal Veterinary College (RVC), Camden Campus, London. Paired with RVC’s ‘Night at the College.’
