    Event Description

    This week's clinical talk is moved to WEDNESDAY due to the fourth year's white coat ceremony. This week's talk will be given by Elizabeth Lane who some of you might remember from equine reproduction lectures in second year. Liz will discuss how to influence reproductive efficiency in the mare, including the conditions that can arise surrounding the reproductive cycle of the mare. This will be a great talk for second and fourth years studying equine reproduction at the moment and for any aspiring stud vets out there! Elizabeth qualified from UCD as a Veterinary Surgeon in 1996, and spent a year in mixed practice. She then undertook a residency programme in Animal Husbandry and Production at the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine, Ballsbridge, before taking up a position of Assistant Lecturer in 2000 and completing a PhD in bovine reproduction in 2002. She took up a clinical lectureship at the Royal Veterinary College, London, in Obstetrics before completing a European Diploma in the European College of Animal Reproduction in 2003. She undertook a postgraduate certificate in Academic Practice from King’s College, London, in 2004. Elizabeth returned to Ireland to take up a position in the Department of Agriculture in 2006, where she undertook research examining herd health on Irish farms, based in the Centre for Veterinary Epidemiology and Risk Analysis. Elizabeth has a keen interest in equine and bovine reproduction. There will be free tea, coffee, biscuits and pizza as always :)
