The Society

 
The Brazilian Embryo Technology Society (SBTE), founded on July 18th, 1985, in Brasilia, Brazil, is a private non-profit organization that congregates graduated professionals dedicated mainly to the embryo technology area.

Society members are involved in various reproductive biotechnologies, in the practice of embryo manipulation and production in several animal species and in research on embryo production, transgenesis, cloning, regulation of embryonic development and survival after embryo transfer. The studies are directed to cattle, small ruminants, swine, equine, companion animals, laboratory species and also those considered endangered.

SBTE´s goal is to serve as a forum for the exchange of information among practitioners, scientists, educators, livestock breeders and students as well as between material suppliers in the area of reproductive biotechnology. The society aims to promote the science of animal embryo technology by encouraging effective research, disseminating scientific and educational information, maintaining high standards of ethics and cooperating with other organizations with similar objectives.

Every August, SBTE promotes a scientific meeting attended by national and international researchers, where the main advances in the experimental and applied embryology field are presented.
