Description

This presentation will focus on the various ways in which nuclear receptors function in reproductive biology. My lab works on preterm birth and how changes in alternate estrogen receptor alpha isoforms at term may affect the timing of parturition. I will also cover another interest of my lab, which is testicular differentiation and function (spermatogenesis).
