Congratulations to the ACT
2015 Theriogenologist of the Year
Dr. Rob Gilbert, chosen as the recipient of the 2015 Theriogenologist of the Year Award to be presented Thursday, August 6 at this year's annual Therio Conference in San Antonio. Gilbert will be honored with this award for his outstanding contributions to theriogenology. Dr. Gilbert is a devotee of comparative reproductive studies. He has published original observations related to dogs, cats, sheep, goats, beef and dairy cattle, horses, non-domestic species and on human reproductive conditions. He is probably best known, however, for his work on postpartum uterine disease in dairy cows. The ACT congratulates Dr. Gilbert on this award and all his accomplishments in the field of theriogenology. Read more.
The mission of the ACT is to promote animal well-being, reproductive health, responsible breeding and genetic practices, and efficient management of breeding-age animals in agriculture, veterinary practice, zoos, preserves, and ecosystems. In particular, the ACT envisions development of focus areas in theriogenology to incorporate the following in theriogenology/reproductive medicine:
1. Population control for domestic and non-domestic animals including feral animals, free-ranging and captive wildlife.
2. Genomics in livestock and companion animal practice.
