George Seidel, a university distinguished professor in the Department of Biomedical Sciences, and Jason Bruemmer, a professor in the Department of Animal Sciences, received prestigious awards this week in Vancouver, Canada at the 2018 annual meeting of American Society of Animal Sciences (ASAS). For 110 years, the ASAS has been devoted to supporting and sharing scientific discovery that enhances animal and human health and well-being. Seidel and Bruemmer are both part of CSU’s Animal Reproduction and Biotechnology Laboratory, a center dedicated to advancing the health of animals and humans through reproductive science research, education, clinical service and outreach.
Seidel, whose work focuses on cattle and horse fertility, earned a Fellow of the American Society of Animal Science award, which recognizes an individual with distinguished service to animal science and the livestock industry for 25 years or more. “Dr. Seidel’s distinguished service to animal science includes pioneering technologies that are widely used to improve the quality of livestock throughout the world.” said Thomas Hansen, director of the Animal Reproduction and Biotechnology Laboratory.
Bruemmer, whose work focuses on equine reproduction, earned the Equine Science Society and American Society of Animal Science Equine Science award, which recognizes an individual who demonstrates outstanding achievement in the areas of extension, research, teaching or agribusiness in the equine industry. “Jason Bruemmer’s dedication to education, research and outreach in the field of equine reproduction is significant and internationally recognized,” said Jerry Black, director of the Equine Reproduction Laboratory and the Equine Sciences program. “He also continues to set the bar high as a mentor for young scientists training under his leadership here at CSU.”
