CGIL Seminar: "Mechanisms of progesterone synthesis and functioning related to dairy cattle oestrous cycle"

Date and Time


ANNU 141


Audrey Martin, a CGIL Ph.D. Student, will present a CGIL Seminar on Friday, February 15th. The seminar will begin at 1:30 pm in room 141 of the Animal Science & Nutrition building.

Audrey A.A. Martin has a degree in Biotechnology from the Université Lyon in France,  and a B.Sc. in Animal Breeding from Université de Limoges, France. During her undergrad internship, she had the occasion to work on reproductive physiology in dairy cattle with Dr. Stephen Butler at the Teagasc Moorepark in Ireland. Then, she completed a M.Sc. in Genetics and Biodiversity at Wageningen University and Research, in the Netherlands. Audrey did her major master thesis focusing on the genetic parts of a mathematical model simulating the dairy cattle oestrous cycle under the supervision of Dr. Marinus te Pas and Dr. Henri Woelders. She joined CGIL for her minor master thesis to work on the Efficient Dairy Genome Project with Dr. Filippo Miglior and stayed on the project as a research associate.

The Centre for Genetic Improvement of Livestock welcomes all interested University of Guelph staff, faculty, students, and industry or academic collaborators to attend our CGIL Seminars, which are held on  Friday afternoons throughout the Fall and Winter semesters. The meetings are always available remotely via Fuze, for those unable to attend in person, and presentation recordings may also be available after the seminar. Please let me know if you need further instruction on how to connect to Fuze or view available webinar recordings.  
Have a great week!
