Interdisciplinary Reproduction & Health Group Science Seminar – Feb. 7, 2024

The goal of the Interdisciplinary Reproduction & Health Group (IRHG) Seminar Series is to highlight transdisciplinary precision research taking place in the reproductive health field, provide opportunities for collaboration among researchers to build their own research efforts and promote clinical/researcher activity across the University of Missouri System and our partners.

The IRHG was organized and established through a faculty-driven, grass roots effort in 2016 to develop an integrative interdisciplinary program that transcends traditional departmental, college and system boundaries to foster excellence in reproduction, health research and education at Mizzou.

About the Speaker

Brad Daigneault, Ph.D. portraitDr. Daigneault conducts research to identify reasons for infertility in livestock and humans. His research addresses embryo origins of pregnancy failure with an emphasis on paternal contributions and gene-environment interactions that alter sperm function and embryo development. The laboratory uses assisted reproductive technologies and gene editing strategies in multiple species that includes genomic, epigenomic and translational approaches to improve reproductive efficiency for agriculture and biomedical applications.
