    Amanda Bartos

    Research Assistant III
    Education: BS, Miami University, 2011.

    My research focuses on three areas:

    • The role of the uterine LIF-Gp130-Stat3 signaling pathway in embryo-uterine interactions in implantation during the early stages of pregnancy.
    • The role of premature uterine ageing in preterm birth.
    • The role of muscle segment homeobox (Msx) genes in the uterus in mammalian embryonic diapause (dormancy).

    Craig Park

    Postdoctoral Fellow

    Education: University of Guelph, Canada (BSc, 2007); McGill University, Canada (PhD, 2012)

    My research focuses on the role of muscle segment homeobox genes (Msx1/Msx2) during embryo implantation.  I am also interested in the genetic susceptibility of early decidual senescence leading to premature birth.
