In honor of Trans Ova’s 40th Anniversary, we have asked team members to reminisce about their time with Trans Ova and what they are excited about for the future.
Our final team member spotlight to celebrate Trans Ova Genetics’ 40th Anniversary is our founder and President, Dr. David Faber. None of this would have been possible if Dr. Faber had not had a crazy idea just 40 years ago. The entire Trans Ova team is grateful to him for his wisdom and leadership he has provided over the years.
