Reproduction, a major sentinel of the health of animals and humans

Environmental and societal changes, including an increased stressful lifestyle, constrain reproduction; a major sentinel of the health of ecosystems, animals and humans.

My research focus on the interactions between the seminal fluid bearing spermatozoa with the female genital tract and the oocytes, before and during fertilization. This includes determining how the seminal fluid is able to signal and elicit genomic shifts in the female genitalia in relation to maternal immune tolerance to the foreign cells and proteins it contains.

My research, covering areas of comparative reproductive biology/biotechnology, andrology and cryobiology, pursues disclosure of valuable biomarkers for male fertility, of the complicated signaling system that the transcriptome and proteome of the seminal fluid is built and how they are constrained by cryopreservation.

Reinforcement of our diagnostic capacity in andrology and assisted reproductive techniques is still my leading star.
