Research

My scientific focus has been on the genetics of reproductive tract development. My laboratory has utilized mouse transgenic models to discover novel transcriptional regulators, which play an important role in male and female gonadal and reproductive tract development. We also conduct genomic studies, utilizing chromosomal microarrays and whole genome sequencing to identify mutations that cause human reproductive pathologies. We use animal models to model mutations and their effect on the gonadal and reproductive tract development. Our studies are currently focused on the ovary, testes and uterine development and genetics of infertility and uterine tumors.
