Fuller W. Bazer is a Regents Fellow, Distinguished Professor, and O.D. Butler Chair at the Department of Animal Science with joint appointments at the Departments of Veterinary Integrative Biology and Veterinary Physiology and Pharmacology at Texas A&M University. He previously served as a graduate Research Professor at the University of Florida. Dr. Bazer received the B.S. degree in biology from Centenary College of Louisiana, the M.S. degree in animal science from Louisiana State University, and the Ph.D. degree in animal science (reproductive biology) from North Carolina State University. His research has been recognized by the American Society of Animal Science Physiology and Endocrinology and L.E. Casida Awards, Society for Study of Reproduction Research, Distinguished Service and Carl Hartman Awards, Alexander von Humboldt Research Award, and Wolf Prize in Agriculture. He serves on the Editorial Boards of Biology of Reproduction (Associate Editor), Journal of Animal Science, Endocrine, Journal of Reproductive Immunology, Reproduction in Domestic Animals, and American Journal of Reproductive Immunology. Dr. Bazer’s research is on uterine biology, pregnancy recognition signaling by interferon tau and estrogen in sheep and pigs, respectively, roles and endocrine regulation of proteins in uterine secretions, and the endocrinology of pregnancy, especially roles of lactogenic and growth hormones in fetal-placental development and uterine functions. The therapeutic value of conceptus interferons and uterine-derived hematopoietic growth factors are areas of research with pigs and sheep as models for human disease.
