Reproductive Medicine


– To create comprehensive reference map at single-cell resolution of the human uterus
– To study the origin of fibroids at the single-cell level
– To study the origin of late gestational pathology focuses on decidualization deficiency
– To establish the maternal-fetal communication mechanisms before embryo implantation
– To provide early diagnosis and treatment of endometriosis and endometrial cancer
– To study the molecular mediators in hormone-dependent oncogenesis in endometrium and ovary
– To establish a success strategy in the implementation of physical activity to reduce the risk of chronic disease in women

Research Lines

– Study of endometrial receptivity and cell map of the human uterus. Previous research in our laboratory using microarray technology has established a transcriptomic signature of human endometrial receptivity
– Maternal-fetal communication
– Role of the endometrial microbiome in reproduction
– Early diagnosis of preeclampsia and other complications of pregnancy
– Study at the single-cell level of the origin of uterine fibroids
– Early diagnosis and treatment of endometriosis and endometrial cancer
– Molecular factors involved in the initiation and progression of hormone-dependent tumours in the endometrium and ovary
– Implementation of physical activity as a strategy to improve health indicators in women
