Animal scientists take part in summer course in Massachusetts
Larry Reynolds, Anna Grazul-Bilska and Pawel Borowicz recently participated, for the fifth year, in one of the advanced summer courses at the Marine Biological Laboratory in Woods Hole, Mass. The course, “Frontiers in Reproduction,” is an intensive six-week laboratory and lecture course for scientists-in-training, including medical fellows/residents, postdoctoral fellows and senior doctoral candidates who seek to improve their knowledge and experimental skills and to pursue a career in the reproductive sciences.
The course is held each summer at the Marine Biological Laboratory, a world-famous training ground for experimental biologists that has hosted more than 50 Nobel Laureates as permanent faculty/staff, visiting faculty, course faculty or course participants (MBL Nobel Laureates). Reynolds served as director for Section 3 of “Frontiers in Reproduction,” which covered the last two weeks of the course and focuses on implantation, development of the reproductive tract and transgenesis.
Reynolds is co-director of the Center for Nutrition and Pregnancy at NDSU and University Distinguished Professor of Animal Sciences. Grazul-Bilska and Borowicz were faculty for Section 3 and gave lectures and a laboratory on angiogenesis and image analysis. Grazul-Bilska is professor of animal sciences and a faculty member in the Center for Nutrition and Pregnancy. Borowicz is co-director of NDSU’s Advanced Imaging and Microscopy Core Laboratory.
NDSU is recognized as one of the nation's top 108 public and private universities by the Carnegie Commission on Higher Education.
