Who We Are
Our work would not be possible without our incredible team.
Dr Cecilia Langhorne
Cecilia received a Bachelor of Science degree in Zoology from the University of Glasgow where she developed an interest in reproductive technologies and their application to wildlife conservation, particularly amphibians. She spent her early career in medical research, gaining experience in assisted reproductive technologies and biobanking, before merging her interests through her PhD in Animal Physiology at Mississippi State University. Her research focused on enhancing conservation breeding efforts in endangered North American amphibians, including the development of novel hormone induction techniques to stimulate gamete production and release, and sperm cryopreservation protocols for a number of threatened anuran species.
Cecilia is currently the biobank coordinator at the Royal Zoological Society of Scotland at Edinburgh Zoo and is passionate about promoting the valuable role of biobanks in wildlife conservation.
