About Iske V Larkin

The majority of my position focuses on coordinating and developing new educational opportunities within the Aquatic Animal Health Program and the College of Veterinary Medicine overall. My research activities are only a small portion of my effort but include monitoring the effectiveness of online learning strategies ranging from upper level undergrads, graduate students, veterinary students and professionals. My scientific research includes studies of manatee reproduction, physiology and behavior. Previous work includes developing and validating steroid hormone assays for various species, including mammals and birds. Currently, I have an on-going study looking at male manatee reproductive anatomy at the gross and histological level.
