Research Summary

As a physician-scientist, Dr. Seli's primary focus is to understand and treat infertility. His laboratory characterized the mechanisms regulating translational activation of gene expression in the oocyte. Dr. Seli and his colleagues also made seminal contributions to our understanding of oocyte and embryo competence in IVF and the potential role of non-invasive diagnostic technologies in this context. Dr. Seli is the recipient of many National Institutes of Health (NIH) and pharmaceutical industry-sponsored research grants. He has trained more than 50 pre- and post-doctoral fellows, published more than 100 scientific articles, and received numerous research awards, including the Ira and Ester Rosenwaks New Investigator Award from the American Society for Reproductive Medicine (ASRM), and the President’s Achievement Award from the Society for Reproductive Investigation (SRI). Dr. Seli’s current research focuses on determinants of oocyte and embryo health, and mechanisms of ovarian ageing.
