Research in the Hood lab is focuses on understanding the interactions between nutrition, physiology, and individual variation in performance. Within this context we focus on 3 areas: 1) reproductive performance and life history tradeoffs, 2) maternal effects and offspring performance, and 3) milk composition and the impact of lactation on human health.
