Dr. George Foxcroft
Co-Director, Porcine Node 2008-2012 Dr. Foxcroft, Co-Director of the EmbryoGENE Network based out of the University of Alberta, was appointed to an NSERC-Industry Research Chair in Swine Reproductive Physiology in 1988. The research program he established was supported by over $4M of funding from the Alberta Pork Board, the provincial government, and other industry partners during the subsequent 10 years. Dr. Foxcroft was one of the first individuals from the University of Alberta appointed to a Senior Canada Research Chair and is recognized as a world leader in the application of basic research to improving breeding herd management at the production level. Dr. Foxcroft's core expertise includes endocrinology, embryology, and the application of a range of state-of-the-art technologies to the improvement of breeding management in swine. Most recently, a major CFI/ASRIP grant to establish an Agricultural Livestock Genomics/Proteomics Unit at the University of Alberta will allow members of the Swine Reproduction-Development Program, led by Dr. Foxcroft, to rapidly increase the study of early embryonic and fetal development in swine at the genomic level. Dr. Foxcroft retired from the University of Alberta and Dr. Michael Dyck assumed the post of director of the porcine node.

The network project was initiated by the Principal Investigator (PI) (Marc-André Sirard) in close collaboration with the three co-PIs (George Foxcroft, Claude Robert, and Michael Dyck).

Through their broad research programs, the two senior scientists, Drs. Sirard and Foxcroft, have maintained active research collaborations with many of the other co-applicants and thus have a good understanding of their individual expertise and research goals.
