Special Topics in Equine Reproduction

To discuss matters related to equine reproduction, not available in the regular courses offered by the Graduate Program in Animal Reproduction, with the participation of professors, researchers and professionals from other national and international institutions. To address current and relevant subjects in the field of equine reproduction, offering student the opportunity to engage in discussions and establish collaborations with professors, researchers and invited professionals. School of Veterinary Medicine and Animal Science (FMVZ) São Paulo main campus Program content addresses the field of equine reproduction, including reproductive physiology, management, pathology, biotechnology and obstetrics. This will more precisely defined by the visitor professor, researcher and professional expertise.

Molecular Biology Applied to Animal Embryology Endocrinological aspects of follicular development and ovulation

The knowledge within the animal reproduction context is new. Still, there are enormous possibilities to apply the reproductive biotechnologies using controlled follicular development and ovulation in the field. And it is noteworthy that the Department of Animal Reproduction has a line of research related to the theme which is coordinated by the professors who are proposing this course. Study in detail the endocrinological aspects of follicular development and ovulation empathizing the employment of the synchronization biotechnology for timed reproductive programs. The objective is also to develop in the graduate the capacity of critical analysis of issues related to the theme. School of Veterinary Medicine and Animal Science (FMVZ) São Paulo main campus 1- Physiology and endocrinology of follicular development; 2 – Follicular dynamics during reproductive life; 3 – Basics of ultrasound applied to follicular dynamics; 4 – Theories of the pharmacological control of the estrous cycle and ovulation; 5 – Hormone therapy; 6 – Anestrus; 7 _ Protocols to synchronize the follicular growth and ovulation; 8 – Possibilities to use the fixed-time artificial insemination in the field; 9 – Efficiency of the synchronization protocols for superovulation and fixed-time embryo transfer.
