Animal Well-Being

Research in the area of animal well-being is typically incorporated within other focus areas such as genetics or physiology. Students pursuing research projects emphasizing animal well-being have investigated the genetic basis of behavior, the effect of breeding behavior on the reproductive efficiency of swine and the effect of housing conditions on stress-related hormones in captive primates.
