  • We develop enabling technologies for in vitro gametogenesis (IVG) from stem cells

Discovery Lab for Reproductive and Child Health

Our mission is to use stem cells and regenerative medicine approaches to understand the science of human reproduction and fertility.  This information is crucial to improve human reproductive well-being, enable healthy pregnancies and to build healthy families. As a key part of our research program we use state-of-the-art technologies such as genome sequencing and CRISPR/Cas9 gene editing.  If you are interested in learning more or would like to join our research team please send us an e.mail.


The Clark Lab welcomes people from all backgrounds to join our group. Diversity is a defining feature of the University of California, and the Clark Lab embraces this as a major source of strength in the work that we do. Join us!
