Biographical / Historical

Upon receiving the grant, Beatty was initially engaged with recruiting an immunologist to work on antibodies in mammalian spermatozoa. After some difficulties in finding a suitable candidate, Abraham Kulangara was appointed as a Research Assistant in 1965. In 1967, Beatty and Anne McLaren applied for another Ford Foundation grant under the Physiology of Reproduction Program to enable them to continue their work.
