The Jackson Laboratory, Bar Harbor, ME

We study how germline stem cells balance self-renewal with differentiation. Stem cell self-renewal at the expense of differentiation can cause germ cell tumors while differentiation at the expense of self-renewal can cause sterility. Our long-term goal is to understand the mechanisms that regulate germline stem cell fate.

We are also interested in the molecular function of testosterone in spermatogenesis.
