Reproduction (Animal and Human)

The Reproduction Health Group, which is comprised on faculty researchers and practicing clinicians, is dedicated to the development of break-through technologies which improve reproductive health of animals and humans. The group, one of the first in the world, is responsible for the development of controlled ovulation technology which includes hormonal treatment of animals. Currently, the group members are developing new approaches to study endocrine regulation of reproduction; this will enhance our understanding of reproductive function and provide more information on the mechanisms related to the development of reproductive disease. Particular areas of expertise include: fertility, developmental biology, reproductive physiology, theriogenology, endocrine disruption in humans, domestic (e.g. cows, horses) and wild (e.g. Bison) animals, controlled reproduction technologies, lactation (neonatal toxicology, and embryonic development.
