Genetics of male infertility, spermatogenesis and sperm function
I research the genetic causes of male infertility and investigate the role of novel genes/proteins in sperm production and function. To do so, I use a variety of knockdown/knockout mouse, fly and cell models.
- sperm function
- knockout mouse models
- male infertility
- Investigating the role of a novel gene in spermatogenesis and male fertility.
- Defining the role of a novel centriole protein in spermiogenesis and its role in sperm motility
- Inter-species differences in sperm structure
