Our research focuses on the vital field of reproductive and maternal-fetal health, recognizing the severe impact of infertility and gestation failure. Traditional basic research in these areas has been hindered by ethical and practical constraints. Our innovative approach uses human pluripotent stem cell (hPSC)-derived models to overcome these barriers, allowing us to explore the fundamental mechanisms inherent in the processes of fertilization, implantation, and early embryogenesis. Through targeted differentiation, organoid technologies, animal models, and cutting-edge genomic tools, we aim to unravel the pathology of these conditions, forging new therapeutic avenues, and working towards innovative treatments for infertility and gestation failure.
