Multiple Ovulation Embryo Transfer seminar at the Ethiopian Institute for Agricultural Research
Apr. 27th, 2010
I was planning on working on my presentation for the EIAR Ethiopian Institute for Agricultural Research when I got up this morning but I spent the morning reading and sending emails about our meeting with the Investment Office yesterday. Abera and I really stirred a hornets’ nest with our emails. Hopefully we can use this opportunity to finalize everything with the property and move on.

It was apparent that without our help ET would still be on the shelf. The last eight years they have had many attempts to push it forward but have always been unsuccessful. At Debre Zeit they had a professor from Cuba teach them for several months without any embryos. Holeta also went through similar training without success. They were really at a standstill when we came along and gave them the jumpstart that they needed. It will be interesting to see how they proceed at this point in time. I am concerned that politics may get in the way.

We didn’t have a ride home so we hitched a ride with the Debre Zeit team. We had to wait a little while for them to get their “per diem” for attending the meetings. I told Dr. Tamrat that in the US the participants paid a registration fee instead of receiving one. He saw that you would value the education more if you paid for it.
