Takeshita Primate Endocrinology Research Laboratory
The Takeshita laboratory focuses on understanding how physiological mechanisms have changed in primate evolution, primarily by exploring hormones as mediators of behavior and life history traits.
Other projects incorporate the impact of environment on primate stress, reproductive monitoring, and hormonal effects on the brain.
The lab is fully equipped for enzyme immunoassays of steroid and peptide hormones, for genetic analyses, and includes equipment for processing non-invasive samples.
