Inside Reproductive Biology

Reproductive biology examines reproduction in humans, animals and plants at the molecular, cell, tissue and organism levels. Biologists in this field look for solutions to infertility and seek to retain essential genetic characteristics, particularly in endangered species. Many reproductive biology programs include studies of the breast, colon, and endometrial cancers, as well as endometriosis.

Education Information

Graduate-level training programs may lead to a Master of Science, Master of Health Sciences or Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) in Reproductive Biology. Reproductive biology certificates may be earned as part of a master's degree program in other sciences. Related master's and doctoral degrees may look at reproductive biology from the perspective of developmental biology or endocrinology. Other degree options include a Master of Science in Reproductive and Cancer Biology. Courses might include molecular and cellular reproduction, reproductive physiology and endocrinology, bioethics, reproductive biology, cytogenetics, animal research and experimental designs. Here is some further reading that might be of interest to you.
