My research involves the study of the female reproductive system in mammalian species and how ovarian input influences overall aging. In particular my research involves how transplantation of young ovaries into aged female mice affects their lifespan. I am also interested in the possible correlation between estrous cycling and increased lifespan in this research model. In a related line of research, I am studying the effects of analgesics on angiogenesis in transplanted ovarian tissue.
