My laboratory is located in Bastrop, Texas, at UT Science Park – Veterinary Sciences.
- Nonhuman primate disease models
- Primate reproductive biology
- Assisted reproductive technology
The research in my laboratory has been directed toward the development of nonhuman primate models of human diseases and reproductive biology of neotropical primates. Current studies include studies to develop methods for superovulation of primates, in vitro fertilization of primate oocytes and embryo culture.
Students with an intent in learning methods for modeling human disease or an interest in learning assisted reproductive technologies using nonhuman primates can be provided a tutorial experience in my laboratory.
