This year I had the chance to attend the Annual Meeting of the American Society of Andrology (ASA) in San Antonio, TX, thanks to Professor' s Takenaka support. It was a stimulating experience for me. I received the 2013 Lalor Foundation International Travel Award for the study on the "The effects of antioxidants administration in the unilaterally cryptorchidized rat model". I was very honored to received this award and very happy. I hope I will be able to participate also next year in this Meeting.
