CNBP researcher Mel McDowall, managed to get up-close and personal with a llama named Marco, during her recent trip to South America.

Mel was visiting the Instituto de Investigation y Tecnologia en reproduccion Animal (INITRA), at the Universidad de Buenos Aires, where she was hosted by Pablo Cetica, a long time collaborator in the field of cattle embryo metabolism.

In addition to meeting a number of research groups, including horse and cattle reproduction units, she also gave a departmental seminar “Master class: measuring metabolism in the oocyte and pre-implantation embryo”.

The technologies created within the CNBP were accepted with a large degree of enthusiasm and there was plentiful talk about future collaborations and possible research placements in Adelaide.
