Research - Reproductive Physiology

Photo of foalThe long-term goals of laboratories in Reproductive Physiology are to address problems affecting the reproductive health of mares by gaining a clearer understanding the biochemical processes controlling the estrous cycle, the role excess fat deposits play in disruption of reproductive activity, identifying factors associated with the maintenance of pregnancy, and studying the effects that fescue contaminated with ergot alkaloids can have on the unborn foal.
