Research Information

Dr. Reese's laboratory is interested in the molecular mechanisms of embryo implantation and other aspects of reproduction. He is particularly focused on the contribution of prostaglandins and other eicosanoids to the reproductive process. Prostaglandins are key molecules in ovulation, fertilization, implantation, decidualization, and overall control of the parturition process. Dr. Reese has an extended research background in reproductive biology and the role of prostaglandins in reproduction and fetal vascular development. His lab uses Cox1, Cox2, cPLA2, prostaglandin receptor knockout mice, and other transgenic or pharmacologic models of prostaglandin deficiency. Their collaborative studies on the role of prostaglandins in cancer, atherosclerosis, cardiovascular homeostasis and neurobehavioral function reflect a broad-based approach to studies on prostaglandin biology.
