back to where it all began


Reproduction in the horse boasts many unique features that have intrigued and interested scientists and equine veterinary practitioners for many years. The desire to discuss and advance knowledge on the subject led to the First International Symposium on Equine Reproduction, held at Kings College, Cambridge in July, 1974. It was a resounding success, both scientifically and socially, and it spawned an on-going series of such meetings held in various countries around the world every 4 years.

These get togethers have continued to act both as a stimulus for new scientific investigations and as the forum where scientists and veterinary practitioners engaged in the theory and practicalities of breeding horses efficiently can keep up to date with the latest research and kindle further research endeavours. More than anything else the 11 previous ISER meetings have stimulated the development and practical application of many of the present day diagnostic and therapeutic techniques which have revolutionised horse breeding worldwide.

We are pleased to announce that the 12th International Symposium on Equine Reproduction (ISER) will be held at Churchill College, Cambridge during 22nd - 27th July 2018. It will mark a timely return of this prestigious 4-yearly conference to Cambridge – back to where it all began. Professor Twink Allen
