Interdisciplinary Reproduction & Health Group Science Seminar – Nov. 1, 2023

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

Clay A Lents, PhDCurrent focus is on gilt development, a critical component of lifetime productivity. Overarching goals are to understand mechanisms controlling 1) growth and reproductive development of gilts; 2) neurological initiation of puberty of pigs; 3) genomic variation related to reproductive development, productivity, and longevity of gilts.
