The Research Department of Reproductive Health hosts a multidisciplinary team of clinicians and scientists with expertise in a wide range of disorders affecting womens’ reproductive health. Our research portfolio spans molecular investigation into the health of oocytes (eggs) and embryos, through clinical research of common gynecological conditions, such as endometriosis and polycystic ovarian syndrome, and rare disorders of sexual development, to public health issues such as pre-conception health and control of sexually transmitted infections.
Our research aims to uncover pivotal molecular determinants of mammalian oocyte quality. Given that faulty chromosome partitioning is a prominent feature of poor oocyte quality, our work focuses on interrogating the machinery responsible for executing chromosome segregation in the oocyte and how these are monitored by surveillance mechanisms. This type of insight is necessary for advancing assisted reproductive treatments and approaches for female fertility preservation.
