Research Interests -- Genetic Regulation of Mammalian Reproduction
The main focus of my research is investigating the genes that regulate mammalian reproduction. One approach I utilize to study genetic regulation of reproduction is gene “knock-out” models that present an abnormal reproductive phenotype. Characterizing these mutant models has resulted in two main areas of research, investigating germ cell development and the initiation of meiosis during embryonic development and regulation of the placental trophoblast stem cell lineage during pregnancy.
