Using human stem cells and mouse models,  our overall goal is to understand the cell and molecular basis of germline cell differentiation and epigenetic reprogramming. This information is crucial  to improve human reproductive and child health, and to create stem cell models for rebuilding tissues and restoring fertility after cancer therapy.
