Research Interests
The Kipp laboratory uses a broad spectrum of molecular, cellular, biochemical, genetic, morphological, and physiological approaches to investigate the roles of hormonal signaling and gene expression in the regulation of ovarian follicle development. Our research aims to provide important insights toward disruptions of these signaling pathways and gene regulation in reproductive/endocrine dysfunctions or diseases, such as ovarian cancer, polycystic ovary syndrome, premature ovarian failure, and infertility. Findings from our research promise better prevention and treatment of these dysfunctions or diseases.
