Prof. Phillipa Melamed Lab Project For The Summer
Our research focuses on the role of epigenetics in the central control of reproduction. We aim to understand the role of chromatin in the activation and function of the reproductive axis during normal development. We are also looking at how the epigenome mediates variation in reproductive phenotypes, particularly in response to the environment, and its role in fertility disorders and reproductive disease. Our research focuses on molecular techniques, including also biophysical approaches, cell, and animal studies, and analysis of human cohort data.
During the summer project, we invite you to choose one of the following two areas :
1.Variation in adult reproductive function due to the early life environment
2.Utilizing the epigenome to regulate the reproductive activity
