Rhesus macaque

eagle-i ID


Resource Type

  1. Macaca mulatta


  1. Resource Description
    The Stouffer lab uses non-human primate models to investigate factors controlling the growth and ovulation of the mature follicle at midcycle, as well as development of the corpus luteum from the ovulatory follicle and its function until the end of the menstrual cycle or into early pregnancy. Additionally, they aim to study the reproductive neuroendocrine effects of androgen (testosterone, T) and Western-Style Diet (WSD) in female monkeys from peri-puberty to prime reproductive age
