Current research activities

  • Molecular and genetic approaches for the mechanisms underlying embryo development in livestock animals.
  • Comparative study on species-specific differences in mammalian development and differentiation.
  • Maternal and fetal recognition mechanisms of pregnancy in cattle.
  • Improvement of developmental competences and cryosurvivability of mammalian oocytes and embryos.

Our goal is to design novel reproductive technologies that contribute to a stable food supply, food safety, and eventually promotion of human
