Paul’s Success Story

Contribution to Science

Paul’s device improves the cryopreservation of vertebrate genetic stocks of biomedical significance.

  • Paul spent over a decade practicing dentistry in California before moving to Montana and becoming interested in raising llamas.
  • After numerous years of research and development, Paul and his wife Sally have become the world’s leading authorities on embryo transfer (ET) in the South American Camelids, teaching ET in many countries.
  • The Embryo Cradle, was born after 15 years of research, and was the first device to successfully puncture a llama embryo in preparation for freezing and transporting across continents—leading to the world’s first llama babies born from frozen embryos.
  • Paul’s first grant application did not receive a fundable score, and it took him two more years of work before his Phase I resubmission was selected for funding. Paul’s advice for hopeful grantees is to “be prepared for the long haul.”
