Theriogenologists will honor Varner for work in equine reproduction

Dickson Varner, professor and holder of the Pin Oak Stud Chair of Stallion Reproductive Studies in the Department of Large Animal Clinical Sciences at the College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences, has been named the recipient of the David E. Bartlett Lifetime Achievement Award from the Society for Theriogenology and the American College of Theriogenologists.

Established in 1971, the award honors excellence in theriogenology, or animal reproduction, and is presented to one person annually. Varner will receive the award at the joint annual conference this July in Asheville, North Carolina.

The award honors Varner’s work in equine theriogenology, which includes assisted reproduction, stallion fertility, and in-vitro preservation of stallion sperm.
