AABP Edwin Robertson Beginning Embryo Transfer Seminar
August 10-12, 2016
Virginia Tech, Blacksburg, Va.

The AABP, with the support from the American Embryo Transfer Association, will hold a three-day embryo transfer seminar for beginners August 10-12, 2016, at the Virginia-Maryland College of Veterinary Medicine in Blacksburg, Va. If you want to learn embryo transfer or if you have begun and are struggling, this seminar is for you. You will be taught the most up-to-date techniques by a staff with years of experience at your side.

Superovulated cows will be provided for each student to collect, and then search for, evaluate and freeze embryos on their own. Microscopes, freezers, and all ET equipment will be provided, but you are welcome to bring any equipment with you. All techniques will be discussed and demonstrated on donor cows before you begin your work on the practice cows. Superovulation, collection, freezing, transfer, estrus synchronization, donor scheduling, embryo morphology, and semen quality evaluations will all be discussed in detail. We will also include a discussion on transferring fresh and frozen IVF-derived embryos.

A highly qualified faculty of experts teaching the seminar include: Randall Hinshaw, DVM (Ashby Embryos); Richard Whitaker, DVM (New England Genetics); Sam Edwards, DVM (Harrogate Genetics International); and Greg Schueller, DVM (Sunshine Genetics). In addition, 24 CE credits will be available through AABP for this hands-on seminar.
