Our overall goal is to understand the cell and molecular basis of germline development and epigenetic reprogramming. This information is crucial for building stem cell models to improve human reproductive and child health, and to overcome infertility after cancer therapy.  

Congratulations to Ernesto Rojas, our MCDB undergraduate who was featured in the Downy Patriot news this week.
