The 25th Annual Meeting of the SBTE which occurred from 19 to 21 August 2010 exceeded the expectations of its organizers. There were 378 participating partners, professionals and graduate students, and 235 approved abstracts! Participation in workshops, mainly the "Inter-relations between human reproduction with that of other animals”, chaired by Dr. Pietro Baruselli, USP, drew attention of those who attended for being an innovative theme at the meeting and for the significant number of subscribers. The location chosen for the event could not have been better: the paradisiacal Porto de Galinhas beach - Permambuco, elected for nine consecutive years by the “Viagem e Turismo” magazine the best beach in Brazil. It offers to visitors more than 18 kilometers of white sand, with clear and warm waters. The annual meetings of SBTE have been acclaimed as a great time to meet colleagues and share experiences.
