Abbott mentees present at Biology 152 Research Symposium

Undergraduate students mentored by David Abbott, PhD, of the UW Ob-Gyn Division of Reproductive Sciences, shared their research projects at the UW-Madison Biology 152 Research Symposium on December 14, 2021!

Mihika Sathe brought a poster on excess fetal testosterone exposure in male rhesus monkeys and how it induces pancreatic morphological damage in adulthood leading to type 2 diabetes.

Nicolette Wehrli’s poster focused on how circulating estradiol levels are crucial for receptive but not proceptive sexual behavior in adult female rhesus monkeys as part of a larger study examining Neuro-estrogen and its role in female sexual behavior.

Congratulations, students and mentors!
