One main role for Paula is to coordinate the stallion program at the Equine Reproduction Laboratory which consists of research, teaching, and clinical stallion semen collections, along with the frozen semen inventory and cryopreservation of sperm. She is also actively involved in day-to-day client interaction with emphasis on stallion welfare, safe handling, and performance in a breeding atmosphere. In addition, she provides continuing education to horse owners, veterinarians, and students and helps with ongoing research. Research interests: cryopreservation of equine sperm, salvaging epididymal sperm, refreezing frozen sperm for ICSI use.
