Research Interests

    My reserch interest is animal reproductive biology and technology. Currently we are looking into the factors that facilitate the development and maintainance of embryo and germline stem cells in vitro and try to use these cell tools in gene editing and production of genetic modified animals with pharmaceutical and agricultural importance.
