2 horses in a field

The Equine Embryo Laboratory performs both research and clinical work in equine assisted reproduction. Currently, the Lab is one of fewer than 10 in the world actively doing research on horse cloning and is one of the two main laboratories in the United States performing clinical oocyte recovery and intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) to produce foals from client mares and stallions. Since 1999, the laboratory has performed research on equine oocyte maturation, fertilization, sperm injection, early embryo development, and cloning. The lab produced the first horse foal from an in vitro-produced embryo in North America (via ICSI and embryo culture) in 2003, and the first cloned foal in North America in 2005. We have published more original scientific reports on equine cloning and ICSI than has any other laboratory in the world.
