About the Event

Kenna is in the Animal, Dairy, and Veterinary Sciences Department in the College of Agriculture and Applied Sciences at Utah State University. Her research is primarily focused on animal reproduction and early development, specifically embryology and related cell culture. She loves to discuss different Assisted Reproductive Technologies (ART) in our livestock animals, such as in vitro fertilization (IVF), embryo transfer, and cloning, in enhancing reproductive efficiency in our livestock animals, producing animal models for human diseases, and preserving endangered species.

Taylor is a Ph.D. student in Organic Chemistry at Utah State University in Dr. Lisa Berreau’s laboratory. His research focus is on developing carbon monoxide delivery platforms based upon flavonoid structures. Carbon monoxide has long been known as a toxic gas, colloquially referred to as the “silent killer”. However, carbon monoxide is an integral signaling molecules within humans that we are constantly generating. This presentation will showcase the advancements that researchers  are making in the field of utilizing carbon monoxide as a therapeutic to treat everything from cancer to rheumatoid arthritis.
