The Laramie Foothills Bison Conservation Project focuses on the ecologic and reproductive wellbeing of the bison herd at CSU. Today, we are talking to Dr. Jennifer Barfield and Dr. Kate Wilkins about what it takes to manage, breed, and conserve a bison herd. Tune in as we talk about the importance of bison in their habitat, the benefits of ART, the cultural importance behind this species, and why it takes a village to bring together this project. Enjoy!
This is the second episode in our series on Breakthroughs in Reproductive Technologies. Here Dr Jane Fenelon and Dr Rachel West talk to Dr Rebecca Krisher about the impact that Assisted Reproductive Technologies (ART) have had on human reproduction. Join us as we learn more about the common procedures that are available to us today and their efficacy and about some of the controversies surrounding ‘add-ons’ on offer in the IVF clinic We also try and answer some of the big questions like when should women start thinking about their fertility?
