A free-to-attend online event being held this afternoon (Thursday 9 July 2020), from 5pm-6pm.
This Progress Educational Trust (PET) event will discuss and clarify a change to UK law - introduced to address problems caused by the coronavirus/COVID-19 pandemic - which came into force in July 2020, and grants a temporary extension to the 10-year legal limit on the storage of eggs, sperm and embryos.
The new law has implications for fertility patients, fertility clinics and researchers in life sciences and biomedicine, as well as for the regulator of this area (the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority). Find out more about the themes of the event here.
The event will begin with a presentation by James Lawford Davies (Partner at Hill Dickinson), and will be chaired by Sarah Norcross (Director of PET). Find out more about the speaker and chair here.
Attendees will not be audible or visible during this online event, but will still be able to put questions and comments to the speaker and chair (via a Q&A tool within Zoom Video Webinars).
