Descriptive Title of Research:  Deciphering the role of immune cellular and molecular networks in the growth and architectural organization of the maternal/fetal interface

Research Description:  We are dedicated to discovery of cellular networks necessary for the organization of the maternal-fetal interface (Decidua-Placenta), and understanding their role in preeclampsia, intrauterine growth restriction, recurrent pregnancy loss and implantation failure in Assisted Reproductive Technologies. Our lab employs both human and mouse models of reproductive physiology and disease. We use genetic targeting of immune cell development and function to dissect their role in reproductive tissue organization and disease. We collaborate closely with computer scientists and biostatisticians to develop novel workflows for analysis of our high-dimensional flow cytometry data sets and model the reproductive immune cell networks.
