Chris Murdock, Ph.D.

Dr. Chris Murdock

I have two primary areas of research: (1) vertebrate endocrinology and (2) microbial biodiversity. I am particularly interested in the regulatory pathways for growth and reproduction in fish. A major project in my laboratory is assessing the endocrine signals regulating growth in fish in response to probiotic treatments. I am also working on several projects focusing on measuring microbial diversity in environmental samples.
