My primary focus is in exploring molecular and genetic mechanisms explaining the cause of endometriosis. Endometriosis is a disease where the lining of the uterus is implanted in the abdomen. The exact cause of this disease is unknown. We are looking into specific changes in the genome of those patients that may explain the disease. As a result, specific targeted treatment could be developed for this devastating disease.
The other focus of our research is to look into mechanisms to improve on the in vitro conditions of human embryo development. We are also looking to optimize the current techniques used for embryo freezing.
In addition, we are looking into the safety aspects of doing minimally invasive surgery using robotics.
