Niamh Lewis BVM&S DACT DECAR MRCVS
I graduated from the Royal Dick School of Veterinary medicine, University of Edinburgh in 2008 and I started my career in Ireland and then set about on an equine reproduction adventure which has taken me to Australia, UK, USA and Saudi Arabia. I completed a residency in Equine Reproduction at the University of Liverpool, during which time I set up the first commercial equine intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) centre in the UK in collaboration with Twemlows stud farm. The first ICSI foal was born in 2015.
I am a diplomate of both the American College of Theriogenology and the European College of Animal Reproduction. Most recently I completed a PhD entitled "A metabolic approach towards optimising equine in vitro maturation" which was a collaborative BBSRC funded project between the University of Liverpool, University of Manchester and Texas A&M University.
HOW I CAN HELP YOU
Equine reproduction has been transformed in recent years through advanced reproductive technologies. I am passionate about creating awareness of these techniques and making them accessible to you, your practice or your breeding stock.
