Mission Statement

Mission Statement:

To foster collaborative, multidisciplinary, and integrative approaches to basic and translational research that (i) improves the health of pregnant women and their babies, (ii) enhances the reproductive success of agriculturally important animals and wildlife, and (iii) prepares the next generation of scientists in these research disciplines.


Basic, translational and clinical research aimed at understanding (i) the biology of reproduction in humans and animals from fertilization to delivery and early postnatal development, and (ii) genetic, epigenetic or environmental influences that cause abnormal pregnancy outcomes, including those influences that predispose the mother and offspring to adult diseases.
