Dr. Hinrichs’ current research involves oocyte meiotic competence, IVF, and nuclear transfer in horses.   She conducts this research while teaching in the undergraduate and professional programs, and working with clinical services in Theriogenology. 


She received her DVM from University of California – Davis in 1978, and a PhD from University of Pennsylvania in 1988.  Dr. Hinrichs received her ACT Diplomate status in 1984.  She currently serves as Professor with a joint appointment in the Departments of Large Animal Medicine and Surgery and Veterinary Physiology and Pharmacology in the College of Veterinary Medicine, Texas A&M University.
