Talk Title: “Using Mouse Genetics to Reveal Mechanisms of Primordial Germ Cell Development"

Dr. Laird's current research interest is the origin of the germline. One of the oldest and most perplexing questions in evolutionary as well as developmental biology, her lab is working to identify the mechanisms by which PGCs migrate as well as regulate their proliferation and survival. She also hopes to understand how early developmental events shepherd the genome to the next generation and affect evolutionary selection during gametogenesis.
