Farin to Head IETS
Dr. Peter Farin, associate professor of ruminant health and production medicine and theriogenology, was named president of the International Embryo Transfer Society (IETS) at the organizations annual conference in Cordoba, Argentina.
The IETS encourages and strongly supports the freedom to conduct research on animal cloning by somatic cell nuclear transfer and related techniques using embryonic, fetal and adult animal cells. The organization believes that such research will provide avenues to understanding the genetic regulation of development and should ultimately result in improved health, welfare and reproductive efficiency of animals.
Dr. Farin’s research involves embryo biotechnologies and fetal and placental development.
