Scholarly Interests

The laboratory is focused on understanding fundamental mechanisms associated with successful implantation and establishment of pregnancy. Differentiation of peri-implantation trophoblast and the integrated roles of growth factors, steroid hormones, extracellular matrix proteins, and integrins in mediating conceptus-maternal interactions during implantation are the major areas of emphasis. The current focus of the lab is on the role of the beta transforming growth factors (TGFßs) during implantation. Current Research Support: United States Department of Agriculture. “Integrated function of TGFß, matrix proteins, and integrins in porcine implantation" L.A. Jaeger, PI. 9/01/05 - 8/31/09.
