My present research program addresses the endocrine events in the mare, stallion, boar, elephant and other exotics that operate to initiate, sustain and regulate target organs. My approach is to investigate the role and mechanism of action of reproductive hormones on inducing a cellular response at the level of the pituitary, gonads and embryo. In addition, we are exploring the paracrine/autocrine system that modulates cellular responses. By understanding the control of normal reproductive events, it will then be possible to elucidate the basis of endocrine dysfunction associated with reproductive failure.
