AIA Victorian Division Lunch Meeting - Webinar Available

Tue 05 Feb 2019 @ 12.00pm till 1.30pm AEDT

The Reproductive Technology Revolution

Our speaker Dr Doug Killeen, BScAgr (Sydney), PhD (Sydney) began his working life with the NSW Department of Agriculture at Leeton Research Station, taking up a position in sheep research. In 1966 he returned to Sydney University to do a PhD in reproductive physiology. The 40 odd years after World War II saw a period of pioneering work in the development of artificial reproduction technologies in both animals and humans. These technologies are common place today, but before this they were restricted to the limited use of artificial insemination in cattle and sheep. Doug’s talk will show how this revolution happened and will highlight the prominent roles of Australian scientists and agricultural scientists in particular and his involvement.
