CGIL seminar this week will be presented by Dr. Lauraine Wagter-Lesperance.
Lauri comes from Chatham, ON and has an extensive background routed in agriculture. She obtained her Honours BSc. Agr. in Animal Science at UofG in 1993, and then completed her Master's degree with Prof. Bonnie Mallard in 1997 evaluating variation in immune response of dairy cattle during the peripartum period. This research was foundational to the High Immune Response (HIR) Technology, and she is a co-inventor of HIR in Dairy Cattle.
In 1998, Lauri moved to Calgary, AB and worked in the area of human cancer genetics research for the Alberta Cancer Board. She spent her final year out west in Brandon, Manitoba where she had the opportunity to teach microbiology at Brandon University. She returned to Guelph in 2008, and just recently completed her Ph.D with Prof. Mallard in January. Her Ph.D. was a cross-discipline of science and business towards the goal of bringing the HIR technology to the marketplace.
In addition, she has been awarded a Mitacs Post Doctoral Fellowship to work with Prof. Mallard and Semex, to look at value-added components in colostrum and milk from HIR cows.
This Friday, Lauri will present the second part of her research: “Ph.D Research at the Interface of Science & Business: Part B - Technology Transfer of HIR”.
As usual, we will also be making this seminar available remotely from room 141 using Fuze. If you wish to attend remotely follow this link: https://www.fuzemeeting.com/fuze/18bc389a/31625830.
