Dr. Rodolfo Cardoso is an Associate Professor and a member of the graduate faculty in the Physiology of Reproduction section of the Department of Animal Science. He is an active member of the Interdisciplinary Faculty of Reproductive Biology (IFRB) and the Texas A&M Institute for Neuroscience (TAMIN).

Dr. Cardoso received a D.V.M. in 2005 and completed a residency program in Veterinary Theriogenology in 2007 at the Sao Paulo State University (Brazil). In 2009, he received a Master’s degree in Animal Reproduction from the same institution. Subsequently, Dr. Cardoso obtained his Doctoral degree in Physiology of Reproduction in 2014 from Texas A&M University and completed a postdoctoral fellowship in Reproductive Endocrinology in 2016 at the University of Michigan Medical Center.

Dr. Cardoso’s research interests focus on understanding the impact of the prenatal and early postnatal environments on reproductive neuroendocrine function in females using sheep and cattle as animal models to benefit both the livestock industry as well as human reproductive health. The Cardoso Lab integrates whole animal physiology with cellular and molecular biology to elucidate the mechanisms by which the perinatal environment can modulate several reproductive processes in the offspring. Dr. Cardoso’s teaching interests range from practical reproductive management of livestock to advanced reproductive neuroendocrinology.

His professional memberships include the Society for the Study of Reproduction, the American Society of Animal Science, and the Endocrine Society.
