New lectureship at Southern


The Executive Committee of the Southern Section is pleased to announce the establishment of an annual invited lectureship to the Physiology Section of the Southern Section annual meeting. The Ronald D. Randel Lectureship honors Dr. Randel’s contributions to the field of animal physiology and endocrinology. His contributions have benefited animal agriculture around the world. Dedicating his research career to investigating the reproductive physiology of beef cattle, especially for tropically adapted breeds, Dr. Randel evaluated the role of nutrition on reproduction, elucidated the fundamental reproductive biology of Brahman cattle, developed strategies to reduce livestock production risks and resolved practical problems in beef cattle reproduction. This year he will be honored by a two-part lectureship at the beginning of each Physiology Session.

The following talks will take place at the 2017 meeting:

  • Monday, February 6 – 1:30 PM to 2:20 PM – Rooms: Salon 3 and 4
    Ronald D. Randel Lectureship Part I: Who influenced you? by Dr. W.M. Moseley
  • Tuesday, February 7 – 8:00 AM to 8:50 AM – Room: Salon 2
    Ronald D. Randel Lectureship Part II: Interferons During Early Pregnancy and Fetal Response to Viral Infection by Dr. T.R. Hansen
