My current interests involved endometrial angiogenesis and hemostasis in both the non-pregnant and pregnant states. To this end we have recently found that the molecule "ICON" developed by Hu and Garen has been successful in eradicating endometriotic lesions in a mouse model of endometriosis. This occurs by destroying the aberrant vasculature supporting the disease. Lately I have become interested in reproductive immunology and am part of a program project directed by Dr. Gil Mor in which I study the maternal part of the innate immune system during implantation. Lastly, together with Dr. Hugh Taylor, I have learned and published several papers involving the endometrial stem cell population and the possible contributions of immune cells on the stem cell niche.
