Several of our CISAB faculty share an interest in understanding sex differences and sexual behavior. In 2005, in collaboration with colleagues across a variety of disciplines, both within and outside of CISAB, they established a highly successful, NIH-funded training program, Common Themes in Reproductive Diversity (CTRD). Now in its 11th year of support from the NIH Child Health and Human Development program, CTRD supports research on sexual reproduction, immuno-ecology, stress, aggression, maternal effects and the evolution of human and animal reproductive behavior.
Common Themes in Reproductive Diversity
Is Common Themes in Reproductive Diversity (CTRD) right for you?
Are you a pre- or postdoctoral student interested in why males and females differ in behavior, physiology or morphology? Does your research focus on the ways in which environment, development, physiology and genetics contribute to sex and gender differences? Are you curious about the ways immunity and disease influence reproduction, and vice versa?
If so, you may be a candidate for the Common Themes in Reproductive Diversity (CTRD) research training group.
