Techniques of assisted reproduction, particularly of cattle, have revolutionized animal breeding practices worldwide. University of Wisconsin biochemists Henry Lardy and Paul Phillips developed methods for dilution and long-term preservation of sperm. Reproductive biologist Lester E. Casida pioneered studies leading to control of the estrous cycle, ovulation, and oocyte maturation, and conducted the first embryo transfer that resulted in the birth of a calf. This work, conducted from the 1930s to the 1970s, laid the foundation for in-vitro embryo production, cloning, and transgenic production widely used today.
The marker is located in front of the Animal Sciences Building on eastbound Observatory Drive, east of its intersection with Elm Drive, at 1675 Observatory Drive, Madison, Wisconsin 53706.
