Welcome to the Kallen Lab

Dr. Kallen’s research aims to improve our understanding of the regulatory mechanisms underlying follicular development and reproductive aging in the mammalian ovary, including the role of noncoding RNAs in the reproductive tract.

During her Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility fellowship, Dr. Kallen was selected to Reproductive Scientist Development Scholar (RSPD), as part of a prestigious mentored career development program whose goal is to develop academic reproductive physician-scientists equipped with the skills to address important problems in the field of obstetrics and gynecology.

Dr. Kallen’s clinical and laboratory expertise has uniquely positioned her to bring translational insight to role of noncoding RNAs in the regulation of follicular growth, steroidogenesis and ovarian function, and her vision is that her work will help to pave the way for new targets for preventative and therapeutic interventions related to women’s reproductive health.
