Genomics of reproductive disorders

Identifying genetic risk factors for reproductive disorders

Genetic factors contribute to risk for many common diseases including reproductive disorders.

Professor Montgomery is leading a team of scientists using genetics and genomics to find factors explaining variation in reproductive traits and increasing risk for reproductive diseases. 

One of these disorders is endometriosis where tissue similar to the normal uterine lining grows and invades areas around the pelvis. It creates scar tissue that impedes the function of the organs by reducing their mobility. It causes serious pain and in many cases, infertility.
