Research Interests  

Placenta and Placentation
Animal Reproduction
Stem Cells 

Research Overview   Recently, the major focus of our group is to describe and understand the comparative aspects of the placenta and placentation in domestic and wild animals. In addition, we have studied the particular characteristics of the gestation in South America wild animals with focus on aspects at maternal and fetal inter relationship and on vascular development like micro-architecture. Other point is related to the morphology and reproduction interaction between male and female, wild animal reproductive system, with focus on endangered species. In addition, we have spent particular attention on stem cell morphology with new trends in transplantation in animals and human.
