Endocrinology & Animal Biosciences

Our program provides research-oriented training in basic animal physiology with a major emphasis on endocrine physiology at the organismal, cellular, and molecular levels.

Program Description

The Endocrinology and Animal Biosciences program is for students who are interested in animal physiology and endocrinology. Our curriculum includes courses offered within the program and from across the university and focuses on four main areas - endocrinology, physiology, molecular biology and biochemistry, and statistics and experimental design. The major areas of interest of our faculty include endocrinology of growth, lactation, and reproduction; gastrointestinal health (the gut microbiome, glucose and amino acid metabolism) and obesity; neurobiology of reproduction, energy balance, stress, motivation, addiction, and mood; endocrine disruption and toxicology; and equine science and exercise physiology.
