Interdisciplinary Reproduction & Health Group Science Seminar – Oct. 2, 2024

The goal of the Interdisciplinary Reproduction & Health Group (IRHG) Seminar Series is to highlight transdisciplinary precision research taking place in the reproductive health field, provide opportunities for collaboration among researchers to build their own research efforts and promote clinical/researcher activity across the University of Missouri System and our partners.

The IRHG was organized and established through a faculty-driven, grass roots effort in 2016 to develop an integrative interdisciplinary program that transcends traditional departmental, college and system boundaries to foster excellence in reproduction, health research and education at Mizzou.

About the Speaker

Dr. Diana Monsivais Lecture, October 2The endometrium, or inner lining of the uterus, is a unique tissue with a highly regenerative potential that is crucial for the reproductive health of women. Our group studies the signaling pathways that underpin endometrial regeneration and are abnormal in women with infertility, endometriosis and endometrial cancer. Using genetic mouse models and 3D-endometrial organoid cultures, it is our goal to determine the growth factors that control endometrial cell renewal and differentiation. We also conduct collaborative projects with the Center for Drug Discovery at BCM which aim to develop novel therapies for the treatment of endometriosis and endometrial cancer.
