The Center for Reproductive Sciences

 Center for Reproductive Science

Director: T. Rajendra Kumar, PhD, Associate Professor, Molecular & Integrative Physiology

In seeking new avenues for translational research, the Center for Reproductive Sciences retains a dual focus on the issues of population control and treatment of human infertility. Active basic and applied programs melding experts in the areas of molecular genetics, developmental and cellular biology synergize the use of various animal models with state-of-the-art technology resources to address human reproductive health problems. Amongst these, basic research programs in gonadal physiology, gamete maturation, fertilization, pre and peri-implantation development, reproductive tract disorders, and endocrine disruptors are collaboratively integrated to investigate disease states that impact humans. Genetic and epigenetic causes of birth defects, human ARTs, ovarian cancer, paternal and maternal forms of infertility, endometriosis and uterine fibroids all represent thematic focus groups upon which the Center is designed.
