|This award honors an ASRM member who is
recognized as an outstanding educator in undergraduate, graduate, postgraduate,
professional or patient education in the area of basic and/or clinical
reproductive biology and medicine. Few educators have had such a direct impact
on the practice of assisted reproductive technologies as Robert A. Godke,
Ph.D., Boyd Professor of Reproductive Physiology in the School of Animal Sciences
