My research program is focused on understanding the normal mechanisms of uterine repair and how they can become dysregulated in disease states. In particular we are interested in the role of mesenchymal and epithelial stem cells and cellular transdifferentiation in postpartum uterine regeneration and their possible contribution to diseases such as uterine fibroids, Asherman’s syndrome and endometrial cancer.
