Follow along as we learn about Dr. Fuller Bazer’s career journey, from his upbringing in Louisiana, his Ph.D. training at North Carolina State University in the 1960’s following his military active duty in South Korea, to his early career at University of Florida before settling in at Texas A&M University in 1992. Dr. Bazer is a distinguished professor in Animal Science, College of Agriculture and Life Sciences at Texas A&M University. His research in reproductive biology focuses on uterine biology and pregnancy in livestock species.Dr. Bazer became a member of SSR in 1969, in the early years of SSR. Hear about what SSR means to Dr. Bazer, and how being a scientist in reproductive biology / animal sciences has evolved from the time SSR was created, to now. 
From cleaning dishes in a lab, to engineering, to medical school, to senior principal investigator of the "Reproductive Medicine Group" at NIEHS, listen to the amazing scientific journey of Dr. Carmen Williams, the recipient of the 2023 SSR Trainee Mentoring Award. This podcast also features Dr. Miranda Bernhardt, who, before becoming the Director of the Animal Production Core and Assistant Research Professor at the Center for Reproductive Biology at Washington State University, was a postdoctoral fellow in Dr. Williams’s lab from 2011 to 2017. Mentors are themself first and foremost mentees that keep on learning throughout their career, from others, including their trainees, and from their own experience along the way.

This is the second episode in our series on Breakthroughs in Reproductive Technologies. Here Dr Jane Fenelon and Dr Rachel West talk to Dr Rebecca Krisher about the impact that Assisted Reproductive Technologies (ART) have had on human reproduction. Join us as we learn more about the common procedures that are available to us today and their efficacy and about some of the controversies surrounding ‘add-ons’ on offer in the IVF clinic We also try and answer some of the big questions like when should women start thinking about their fertility? And what does the future hold? As well as a fascinating insight into Rebecca’s career journey so far and tips for trainees.
