Aims and objectives of reproductive Physiology/Neuroendocrinology lab.

 

The application of cellular and molecular biology together with genetics provide the keys to study of reproduction, but many of the problems associated with infertility, fertilization, fetal growth and development, pregnancy loss and maternal complications are still poorly understood. The aim of this lab is to provide opportunity for students to specialize in human reproductive biology considering both basic science and clinical aspects of the subject. Practical experience in major laboratory techniques including histological studies, hormone assays, bio chemical assays, assessment of sperm and the application of molecular biology to reproductive medicines are part of the studies conducted. The broad and long term objectives of this lab are to elucidate the endocrine and neuroendocrine control systems which govern the reproductive processes in a representative primate, the rhesus monkey. The lab comprises the following topics of the research work ; the neuroendcrine control of reproduction in the rhesus monkey; role of different newly discovered peptides such as obestatin, ghrelin and neuromedin on reproduction by using monkeys and rats as an experimental paradigm; evaluation of bull semen quality and sperm DNA integrity during cryopreservation with different cryoprotectants; etiology of infertility and to study the effect of iron overload on anterior pituitary gland in beta thalacemic patients. The lab has active collaboration with Centre of Excellence for bovine genetics Renala Khurd, Okara under control of Pakistan army and Cleveland clinic in America.
