Dr.Wiemer received his master’s degree in reproductive physiology with an emphasis in male physiology from New Mexico State University in 1985. In 1989, Wiemer received his PhD in reproductive physiology with an emphasis in embryology from Louisiana State University (LSU). Wiemer has developed many new culture methods, one of which mimics the uterine/fallopian tube environment and allows embryos to be placed on a layer of cells originally found in the uterus or fallopian tubes. In 1988, he was awarded the overall grand prize by the American Society for Reproductive Medicine when studies using this co-culture system in assisted reproduction with human IVF showed increased pregnancy rates. Dr. Wiemer was also one of the first embryologists in the U.S. to achieve pregnancies with human blastocysts.
Wiemer is a frequent speaker at professional meetings, both across the U.S. and internationally.
