Our interests lie in the basic and translational research in reproductive genomics. We study reproductive tract pathologies in the context of developmental biology. We use both human studies and animal models to discover genes relevant to human pathologies.  Our studies aim to reveal mechanisms of reproductive tract development, from embryo to adulthood, as well as to identify diagnostic and therapeutic targets for reproductive pathologies such as ovarian failure, uterine fibroids, and reproductive tract cancers.
