Research Interests

gynaecology, endometrium, endometriosis, adenomyosis, embryo implantation, endometrial cancer

I would be interested in using this technology to understand how the human female reproductive organs, particularly the uterus and endometrium (in side lining of the uterus) works. It is very difficult to model in laboratory models (for example; most other mammals don't menstruate but the hallmark of female endometrium is menstruation). This technology I believe will help to broaden our understanding of the interaction of the multiple cell types of the human uterine wall, providing new treatments for common gynaecological conditions.
