Edward L. Squires, PhD named new Editor of Journal of Equine Veterinary Science

Pioneer in equine embryo transfer appointed editor of JEVS

Philadelphia, PA. (December 22, 2005) — Elsevier, world-leading scientific and medical publisher, is pleased to present Edward L. Squires, PhD as the new editor for the Journal of Equine Veterinary Science (JEVS).

JEVS’ founding editor, William T. Jones, PhD, bids farewell after 25 years. “From the beginning, I felt there was a need among equine practitioners for a journal that focused on what is new -- written in a readable style,” says Dr. Jones. “The popularity of JEVS was built on the fact that it was interesting reading for equine practitioners of all specializations.”

Dr. Edward Squires is a Professor in the Department of Biomedical Sciences at Colorado State University, where he is the supervisor of the Equine Reproduction Laboratory. Clinical duties include reproductive evaluation of mares and stallions, commercial embryo transfer and freezing stallion semen.

“The Journal of Equine Veterinary Science and Dr. William E. Jones are nearly synonymous. I consider it an honor to have been selected as the new Editor of JEVS,” states Dr. Squires. “I look forward to serving as Editor of the Journal of Equine Veterinary Science.”

Dr. Squires was a pioneer in developing the techniques of embryo transfer. Subsequently, techniques were developed for storage of equine embryos for 24 hr at 5EC. This technology is now used to ship hundreds of embryos nationally each year. Dr. Squires’ most recent research has centered on development of assisted reproductive techniques such as oocyte collection and transfer, oocyte maturation, in vitro fertilization, embryo freezing, superovulation and sexed semen.

His research efforts have resulted in 243 refereed publications, 234 non-refereed publications, 26 chapters in books, 15 books and 115 popular articles. He has lectured extensively nationally and internationally to veterinary and scientific groups and horse breeders.
