ABOUT THE CREATOR
Pure Pup chilled extender was designed by Megan Krautkramer, graduate of the University of Wisconsin—Madison with a Master’s degree in Animal Science, emphasis in Reproductive Physiology. Megan completed her undergrad at Madison and then went on to work at a canine semen bank in Oregon while working with both dogs and zoo animals, sparking her interest in reproduction. To gain a deeper understanding of reproduction and sperm specifically, she returned to Madison to research male fertility assessment with Dr. John Parrish.
Megan’s research focused on developing image analysis techniques to assess sperm nuclear shape as a way to determine differences and changes in male fertility. Megan used this technology to assess seasonal impacts on boar sperm shape and then developed the technology for use on human sperm.
Through this work she had the opportunity to collaborate with scientists at the USDA, working for a time at the USDA Meat Animal Research Center in Nebraska. During her graduate studies, Megan also taught annually as a lab instructor for Reproductive Physiology and guest lectured for the companion animal class on the topic of canine reproduction.
