Welcome to the Lab of Reproductive Biology

Research Interests:

  • Role of male genitourinary tract organs in Human Immunodeficiency Virus
  • Gamete maturation in mouse
  • Role of endogenous retroviruses in development and stem cell biology

Recent Work:

  • Development of a publicly available Semen derived HIV Envelope database to better understand HIV as a sexually transmitted disease. In addition, the development of bioinformatics tools that will allow us to better analyze HIV envelope proteins and their coreceptor usage.
  • Phylogenetic and Genetic analysis of HIV subspecies in paired specimens of blood and semen from HIV infected men
  • Identification of lymphocyte subtypes in male genitourinary tract tissues of mice and men
