Reproductive biology research in the vet school encompasses a range of complimentary projects designed to investigate: fertility in dairy cows (Robinson, Lea, Kendall), environmental and nutritional influences on reproductive function across species (e.g., sheep, dogs, humans) (Lea, England, Kendall) and intra-uterine influences on postnatal wellbeing (Gardner, Lea, England, Robinson).
Ongoing mechanistic studies are focused on ovarian biology and function (Robinson, Lea, Kendall), sperm physiology and fertilisation (England Lea), embryo-uterine interactions during early pregnancy (Robinson, Lea, England), effects of environmental chemicals on gonadal development and function (Lea, Kendall, England, Gardner), fetal programming of adult disease and dysfunction (Gardner, Lea, England, Robinson).
Technologies include post-genomic gene expression analysis including epigenetics, localisation of genes and gene products, explant and primary cell culture, cellular and whole animal imaging and whole animal in-vivo physiology.
