Teri Lear Memorial Lecture

Title:  Chromosome structure unique to horses - what does it tell us?

"Centromeres are that special region responsible for correct separation of chromosomes during mitosis and meiosis.  Their structure is well conserved amongst species.  However, horses have a unique centromere structure that upends our understanding of their function.  Dr. Elena Giulotto is a leading equine geneticist and avid horsewoman from the University of Pavia, Italy.  She is a renowned and engaging speaker.  Come and learn about how horses are once again an evolutionary mystery."

Teri Lear Memorial Lecture

Teri L. Lear was a faculty member at the MH Gluck Equine Research Center specializing in the cytogenetics of horses.  She provided valuable services to the veterinary community through clinical cytogenetics.  In that connection she investigated and identified chromosome mutations responsible for infertility and for disorders of sexual development.  She was also a leader in the genomics community, advocating for and providing physical mapping of genes to chromosomes in connection with the International Horse Genomics Workshop.  She left us in 2016 after a long bout with cancer.  Her friends and colleagues established a fund to support a lecture in her memory.
