Five of us were in Slovenia for sperm cryopreservation work from 11-04-2016 to 15-04-2016.

Our team was complemented with the company of a Portuguese collegue, Carina Caldeira, who is an IMPRESS student at the company Proiser. She is currently on a Short-term Scientific Mission of the COST Action FA-1205 AQUAGAMETE carrying out sperm analysis of various fish and shellfish species.
