Biopsychology Colloquium:
Using Avian Genomics to Innovate the Study of Stress-Induced Reproductive Dysfunction

Brief synopsis:
Stress is a well-known cause of reproductive dysfunction in many species, including birds, rodents, and humans, though stereotypical males and females often respond differently. A powerful way to investigate how stress affects reproduction is by examining its effects on a biological system essential for regulating reproduction, the hypothalamic-pituitary-gonadal (HPG) axis. Join Dr. Calisi Rodríguez as she uses avian models to test causal and sex-typical effects of stress on genomic transcription of the HPG axis. By doing so, her lab has been creating an extensive genomic foundation on which to innovate the study of stress-induced reproductive dysfunction, with the potential to transform the fields of stress and reproductive biology.
