Research Interests

  1. Investigate how ‘insults’ during the preimplantation environment can modify the ‘omics’ (methylome, transcriptome and noncoding RNAs) of the first three lineages at single cell resolution and how these alterations reprogram the placenta and developing fetus, ultimately leading to disease and disorder later in life.
  2. Investigate the impact of adjuvant therapies and ex vivo environment on preimplantation embryos, as occurring in Artificial Reproduction (ART).
  3. Unravel fundamental aspects of the mammalian preimplantation embryo development and RNA biology.
  4. Investigate the mechanism(s) underlying lineage formation in the mammalian embryo at a single-cell resolution.

Immunopathology

The Immunopathology Research Theme comprises a group of researchers spanning the basic and clinical research continuum and focusing on the immune/inflammatory processes involved in the disturbance and restoration of homeostasis.   These activities are rooted in shared visions regarding explor…
