Reproductive Biology

Animal Science

Reprodcutive Biology

The Reproductive Biology Interdisciplinary Graduate Program was developed in 1986 by faculty from Animal Science, Zoology/Physiology, Molecular Biology, and Psychology. It was the first interdisciplinary, degree-granting program at the University of Wyoming. The Reproductive Biology program provides a forum to enhance interactions among faculty and enrich graduate student education.

The Reproductive Biology graduate program remains a vibrant and active interdisciplinary program that grants both MS and PhD degrees. Students in the program participate in the Reproductive Biology Seminar or ANSC 5870.  Students who participate in this seminar course each semester will present on diverse topics pertaining to Reproductive Biology.
