Translating Endometrial Stem/Progenitor Cell Discoveries to Transform Women's and Girls' Gynaecological Health Outcomes

Project: Research

Project Details

Project Description

The endometrial lining of the womb has amazing growth capacity and sheds each month in a woman’s period. My discovery of 2 types of adult stem cells in the womb lining has changed our understanding of how endometrium grows to support pregnancy and how abnormalities in this process lead to gynaecological disease. This project will reveal the role of endometrial stem cells in endometriosis and examines how endometrial mesenchymal stem cells can be used as a therapy for pelvic organ prolapse
