ANS 6751 ‐ Physiology of Reproduction, Spring 2017

The course provides graduate students with a state‐of‐the‐art perspective on mammalian reproductive
biology at molecular, cellular and whole‐animal levels of organization. Among the topics covered are
hypothalamic‐pituitary function, oogenesis and spermatogenesis, folliculogenesis, uterine biology,
embryonic development, pregnancy endocrinology, reproductive immunology, and photoperiodic and
nutritional regulation of reproduction. The course is taught at a high level and is expected that students
will have a good understanding of the fundamentals of reproductive biology and biochemistry.
