Uterine incompetence is a major factor in female infertility, in this presentation Dr. Nie will discuss fertile soil for the embryo to grow by using a number of strategies to understand what makes the uterus receptive for embryo implantation and how the uterus regulates the development of a functional placenta. A particular emphasis is on translating these research outcomes into clinically useful discoveries.
