    Collapse Overview 
    Collapse overview
    Dr. Archibong received a Ph.D. from Oregon State University, in the area of Reproductive Endocrinology and conducted post-doctoral research in the Department of Animal Science, North Carolina State University, Raleigh, in Embryo Physiology. He subsequently conducted another post-doctoral research at the Oregon National Primate Research Center, in Gamete Science. Dr. Archibong is currently an Associate Professor and Director of: 1). Endocrine Core laboratory; 2) Graduate Studies, Department of Physiology at Meharry Medical College. He is also an American Board of Bioanalysis (ABB) Certified Andrologist.
    Dr. Archibong’s expertise is in mammalian reproductive biology and the molecular mechanism(s) of environmental influence on reproductive function. He is particularly interested in the adverse effects of environmental pollutants on the hormones that regulate male and female gonadal function, gamete interaction and pre-implantation embryo development; and preservation of fertility using stem cell technology.
    He has served on the editorial boards, of Biology of Reproduction, Archives of Andrology and Advances in Reproduction and had served as a reviewer for Journal of Animal Science, Theriogenology and Journal of Endocrinology. He is currently a reviewer for Biology of Reproduction, Fertility Sterility, Asian Journal of Andrology, Toxicology Letters and Andrologia. He served two terms in the UDSA Animal Reproduction Study Section. Dr. Archibong served on the Minority Affairs Committee of the Society for the Study of Reproduction for 14 years, a committee saddled with the responsibility of mentoring and encouraging Minority Students to take up profession in Biomedical Sciences. He served as the Chairman of this committee in 1998. Dr. Archibong holds a fertility patent (Bombesin-like peptides and their receptor antagonists for fertility and contraception) and one pending patent for an apparatus for harvesting highly motile human spermatozoa from semen.
    His work in reproductive biology/toxicology is well published in reputable peer reviewed scientific journals.

    PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication.
