About Our Lab

The Reproductive Sciences Laboratory at Texas A&M consists of five collaborating investigators conducting research in diverse areas of mammalian development and reproduction.  Using a combination of embryology and molecular techniques, our trainees investigate: improved methods for producing genetically modified animals, transgenic strategies for biopharmaceutical production, stem cell models of mammalian developmental defects, and epigenetic programming.  Our team is comprised of a diverse group of undergraduate, graduate and postdoctoral trainees and is supported by the College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences, Texas A&M Agrilife, the National Institutes of Health, and the US Department of Agriculture.
