Dr. Martin Vidal is one of the pioneers in the area of stem cell research and its therapeutic application. Dr. Vidal began his undergraduate and graduate education at the University of Wisconsin and then completed his veterinary training in 2000 at the University of Liverpool. Dr. Vidal started his career in private practice in the UK at the Minster Equine Veterinary Clinic and in Australia where he completed his internship at the Goulburn Valley Equine Hospital.
During his internship, Dr. Vidal frequently treated injured horses with bone marrow transfers. This experience motivated Dr. Vidal to peruse a post-graduate work in stem cell biology at Louisiana State University (LSU). Dr. Vidal was among the first to publish on equine stem cell research and in 2004, he worked with the LSU veterinary clinical faculty to establish one of the first university-based stem cell services in the country.
