By Yi-Ying Tung, Nelda A. Rivera, Kelsey Martin, Evan London, Nohra Mateus-Pinilla.


In this short article, Yi-Ying summarizes the exciting findings of the tight and complicated relationships between female white-tailed deer and their fetuses, based on the research study entitled “Reproductive Characteristics of Female White-tailed Deer (Odocoileus virginianus) in the Midwestern USA published in the Journal Theriogenology (Green et al., 2017).

Yi-Ying Tung is a James Scholar, who, as a member of the Novakofski and Mateus Chronic Wasting Disease Collaboratives Labs, is involved in a project that explores the transmission of chronic wasting disease from white-tailed deer to their offspring.

Great work Yi-Ying!!!
