Julia Finkelstein

Nutritional Sciences
The goal of the Finkelstein Laboratory is to elucidate the role of micronutrients in the etiology of anemia and adverse pregnancy outcomes, to improve the health and survival of mothers and young children. learn more

Rob Gilbert

Clinical Sciences
Theriogenology, with emphasis on production animals. Postpartum conditions of dairy cows. Uterine disorders of dairy cows, in particular subclinical endometritis. Interaction of nutrition and fertility. Comparative pathogenesis of trichomoniasis in cattle and in people. learn more

Julio Giordano

Animal Science
My research focuses on dairy cattle reproductive physiology, management, and the implications of reproductive performance on the economics of dairy farms. My research integrates basic and applied science to enhance the reproductive performance and productivity of cows. learn more

Patricia Johnson

Animal Science
There are two objectives of the ongoing research in my lab. Our first goal is to understand the process of follicle selection and development in the hen. The features of avian follicle development make the hen an ideal model for understanding the process of regulation of follicular recruitment. learn more

Marla Lujan

Nutritional Sciences
Role of nutrition, metabolism and body composition in ovarian follicle development, ovulation and fertility in women; Ultrasonographic, endocrine and cellular markers of impaired fertility in obesity; Determinants of chronic disease in women with menstrual cycle irregularities; Development of diet and exercise regimens that facilitate weight loss a learn more

Motoko Mukai

Food Science
Research in my new laboratory focuses on studying the effects of endocrine disrupting compounds (EDCs) on human and animal health using molecular biology, histology and analytical chemistry tools. learn more

June Nasrallah

Plant Biology
CePlant reproduction, Self-incompatibility, Receptor-ligand interactions, Cell-cell signalingll-Cell Interactions in Plants learn more

Kimberly O'Brien

Nutritional Sciences
Mineral physiology during pregnancy and placental nurient transport. learn more

Teresa Pawlowska

Plant Pathology and Plant-Microbe Biology
We study biology and evolution of fungi and their bacterial endosymbionts, with a particular emphasis on modifications of partners' reproductive mode related to their symbiotic lifestyle. learn more

Ned Place

Vet Population Medicine and Diagnostic Sciences
Female reproduction aging, endocrinology, life history trade-offs. learn more

Kathleen Rasmussen

Nutritional Sciences
Maternal and child nutrition, with a focus on pregnancy, lactation and infant feeding; maternal obesity and its consequences. learn more

Mark Roberson

Vet Biomedical Sciences
Molecular Endocrinology with emphasis on placental and pituitary biology. learn more

Brian Rudd

Microbiology and Immunology
My lab seeks to better understand why individuals in early life are more susceptible to infection than adults and respond poorly to vaccination. While the underlying basis for this increase in susceptibility is not known, many reports have indicated that it is due to quantitative and qualitative differences in neonatal T lymphocytes. learn more

Alexander Travis

Vet Biomedical Sciences
Biology of male germ cells, cell biology learn more

Maren Vitousek

Ecology and Evolutionary Biology
Stress physiology, field endocrinology, behavioral and evolutionary ecology, life history trade-offs, sexual selection, and reproduction. learn more

Mariana Wolfner

Molecular Biology and Genetics
We study the actions of proteins that are critical for reproduction. For most of our research, we use Drosophila fruit flies (but we have recently started a separate project, on mosquito reproductive proteins, with Prof. Harrington in Entomology). learn more
