Research Interests

My current research involves the development of improved methods for estrus suppression in mares.  We have investigated a human product and its efficacy for use in the equine species.  My clinical research focuses on improvement of fertility in subfertile stallions using advanced processing techniques. Lastly, I am also involved in perfecting advanced reproductive techniques including oocyte transfer.  We are in the process of developing a laparoscopic approach to placement of the oocyte into the recipient mare.
