Biographical history

Roger A. Pierson earned his B.Sc. in zoology (1978) and an M.Sc. in anatomy (1982) from Purdue University, Indiana. He went on to earn his PhD in reproductive endocrinology and physiology at the University of Wisconsin – Madison (1987). He joined the faculty of the University of Saskatchewan in 1988 as a professor in the department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, and director of the Reproductive Biology Research Unit (College of Medicine). His research is multi-disciplinary: he is an associate member of the department of Herd Medicine and Theriogenology (Western College of Veterinary Medicine), and a member of the department of Biomedical Engineering (College of Engineering). He has earned numerous awards for his research, including First Prize Research Paper at the 14th International FIGO conference (1994); CFAS Basic Science Research Award (1996 and 2000), and the University of Saskatchewan Distinguished Researcher Award (2000).

Custodial history

Donated to the University Archives & Special Collections by Roger Pierson in 2016.

Scope and content

This fonds contains materials relating to Pierson’s research interests, and his collaborative work with graduate students and faculty from medicine, nursing, veterinary medicine, and computational science. Pierson and the reproductive biology research unit made medical history when they were the first to capture natural human ovulation, witnessed with the use of an intra-vaginal probe to produce ultrasound waves. Those original images, on video tape, form part of this fonds; as do other images and data relating to Pierson’s research in reproductive technologies.
