Personal profile

Biography

I am in my third year as a postdoc and love to research all things male fertility, find me on twitter: www.twitter.com/biolbrend

I am interested in taking on PhD students as a co-supervisor and have experience in many aspects of male fertility in mammals and flies. These include investigating the genetic causes of human male infertility, mouse knockout models and defining environmental effects on male fertility.
