The Department of Zoology of IIS (Deemed to be University), Jaipur organized an interactive session and hands on training on the “Male Reproductive Techniques” on 01-03-2024.

Alumna Dr. Karuna Agrawal, alumna of the IIS (deemed to be University), Jaipur was heartily welcomed by Dr. Lata Shahani, Head Department of Zoology and Prof. Priyanka Mathur. Her work to study the reproductive toxicity caused by antidepressant drug Escitalopram in male swiss albino mice and its amelioration by pumpkin seeds extract, is highly commendable. She has published a number of papers in National Journals.

She addressed the students of B.Sc. Honours, Postgraduate and Ph.D., enlightening them by sharing her knowledge on the practical aspects of research by explaining and demonstrating the techniques. She also emphasized the significance of teamwork and lab to lab collaboration. Her positive and encouraging approach inspired  the budding scholars to also follow in her footsteps.

She performed a systematic dissection of the male albino mice to examine various organs while primarily focussing on the reproductive system, which includes organs such as the testes, epididymis, and seminal vesicles. These organs are crucial for sperm production, storage, and ejaculation.

Through this demonstration, participants learned about the anatomy and function of the male reproductive system in mice. They gained insights into how these organs interact and contribute to fertility. Understanding the reproductive system in mice is important for various research purposes, including studies related to fertility, reproductive disorders, and toxicology. Overall, this practical demonstration has provided valuable hands-on experience and insight into the reproductive biology of male albino mice.
