Lab Mission Statement

  1. Conduct basic and applied research in fish endocrinology, with a focus on increasing fish production, understanding the impact of endocrine disruption on feral fish populations, and gaining insights into basic biological questions using fish as model research organisms.

  2. Train students, including the net generation of fish physiologists.

  3. Share information with the citizens of Wisconsin and the world to help expand and diversify food production, protect the environment, and improve human health.
