Summary of Research Interest
The research conducted in my laboratory aims at understanding the mechanisms whereby
manipulations of mammalian gametes and embryos result in alterations of the epigenome.
The laboratory is currently engaged in several research projects;
1) Use of an animal overgrowth syndrome to study the etiology of Beckwith-Wiedemann 2) Effect of the use of assisted reproductive technologies and high caloric diet on cardiovascular performance in juvenile offspring. 3) Determination of the effects of superovulation on the acquisition on DNA methylation in 4) Determination of global DNA methylation profiles in full-grown oocytes in aged and young 5) Identification of the cell type in preimplantation embryos that express H19 from both
