University of Ottawa researchers Kimberly Mitchell and Vance Trudeau have discovered a new hormone in zebrafish that could help combat human infertility. The researchers were accompanied by a group of students who observed Zebrafish mating patterns and were instrumental in completing the project.

Working in conjunction with the Nashville Zoo, Trudeau developed a formula, which was originally used to breed frogs, to help with the breeding of the eastern hellbender, an extremely rare type of salamander found in the southern and eastern United States.
