Research Opportunity: Paul Tsang
The major focus in my laboratory is to study the role of matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) and their inhibitors (TIMPs) in regulating corpus luteum architecture and function.
Recently, a second focus in my laboratory is to study age and growth, reproductive cyclicity and genetics of two skate species found in the Gulf of Maine. This information is vital to the development of a fisheries management plan for these two over-fished elasmobranchs.
Utilizing the technique of ultrasonography, we also participate in a regional project examining the regulation of follicle development in cattle.
