Ireland - Chair, External Scientific Advisory Board, Reproductive Biology Research Cluster Group, University College Dublin and collaborator on functional genomics of uterus and conceptus during the peri-implantation period of pregnancy in dairy and beef cattle. I spend 3 to 5 days per year at University College Dublin reviewing programs and planning experiments. Personnel from UC Dublin visit Texas A&M University to learn techniques in my laboratory.

Republic of Korea - serves as part-time as a professor in the WCU Program in Biomodulation that is in the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences at Seoul National University and director of the Laboratory of Reproductive Biology.

Scholarly Interests

Reproductive biology with emphasis on uterine biology and pregnancy. Mechanisms of action of pregnancy recognition signals from the conceptus to the maternal uterus, including interferon tau and estrogen from ruminant and pig conceptuses, respectively, are studied at the molecular and cellular levels. The roles of uterine secretions as transport proteins, regulatory molecules, growth factors and enzymes and endocrine regulation of their secretion is another major research interest. The endocrinology of pregnancy, especially the roles of lactogenic and growth hormones in fetal-placental development and uterine functions are being studied. The mechanism(s) of action and potential therapeutic value of conceptus interferons and uterine-derived hematopoietic growth factors are areas of research with both pigs and sheep as models for human disease.
