Biography

Dr Mann obtained a BSc in Agriculture from the University of Edinburgh followed by a PhD from the Faculty of Medicine before moving to a postdoctoral position at the University of Nottingham. He was appointed as Associate Professor in 2003 and promoted to Reader in Reproductive Endocrinology in 2007.

The main focus of Dr Mann's research is on reproductive function, particularly in the dairy cow, and includes studies on the use of non-invasive hormone measurement to study reproductive performance as well as studies on the mechanisms of reproductive failure and the efficacy of reproductive therapies.

Expertise Summary

Reproductive endocrinology including the non-invasive measurement of reproductive hormones, hormonal control of reproductive behavior, in vitro studies on mechanisms controlling reproductive function.

Teaching Summary

Dr Mann is undergraduate Course Manager and Exam Correspondent for BSc Animal Science and BSc Animal Science with European Studies and coordinated the final year Animal Science projects. He convenes… read more

Research Summary

Dr Mann's current research is focussed on the elucidation of mechanisms controlling reproductive function in dairy cattle and includes:

· Identifying the relationship between circulating oestradiol concentrations and the intensity of oestrous behaviour in the dairy cow

· Factors regulating the adequacy of circulating progesterone concentrations during early pregnancy in cattle and the efficacy of progesterone therapy

· Hormonal mechanisms regulating angiogenesis in the developing corpus luteum and luteolysis of the corpus luteum at the end of the oestrous cycle

· Studies on the way in which factors such as season and uterine health impact on the reproductive performance of dairy cows

Selected Publications

Dr Mann is undergraduate Course Manager and Exam Correspondent for BSc Animal Science and BSc Animal Science with European Studies and coordinated the final year Animal Science projects. He convenes second and third year modules in Reproduction and contributes to additional modules on Livestock Production Science, Research Techniques, Practical Animal Physiology and Whole Organism Biology.

Dr Mann also contributes to a Masters course in Assisted Reproductive Technology in the Medical School and supervises a number of PhD students
