Description of Research Expertise

My laboratory focuses on examining the effects of ART on the oocyte, embryo and resulting offspring. Specifically we are examining the role of superovulation on implantation and placentation. My expertise is in examining ooocyte and embryo development following IVF and ART. We are interested in epigenetic changes, specifically DNA methylation, occuring following ART and how this affects placentation, fetal growth and long-term health of the offspring.
