Impacts of High Fat Diet Feeding on Weight Gain in Ovariectomized Mice

Semester: Spring 2024


Presentation description

As the obese population continues to increase, there are also elevated risks of metabolic dysfunction. Unfortunately, metabolic research is often based on male models, causing a lack of literature involving females and processes like menopause, a natural decline in reproductive hormones. As such, we used a postmenopausal model (with ovariectomized and non-ovariectomized mice) on two different diets: Normal Chow and High Fat Diet. We then compared changes in body weight and body composition.
