Fund Detail

Fund Purpose:

This fund was formed to recognize the contribution of Dr. Jim Lauderdale to the field of reproductive physiology and to the American Society of Animal Science. Money from the club is used every three years to help support the Triennial Reproduction Symposium. In addition, money from this fund will now be used to support the ASAS Animal Physiology & Endocrinology Award.

Biographical Sketch:

Dr. Jim Lauderdale's contributions to our scientific community and to the animal industry are appreciated. One key scientific contribution was his leadership to develop and obtain regulatory approval for Lutalyse.
