Molecular Control Of Embryonic Diapause

Grant number: DP110101727 | Funding period: 2011 - 2015

Abstract

Many species can halt growth of the early embryo (diapause). This project will use novel animal models and new proteomics techniques to clarify what signals from the uterus control diapause of the embryo. This may uncover new mechanisms for cell regulation that will be relevant to the biology of stem cells, cancer and reproductive technologies.
