Fertility and Hormone Preservation and Restoration
Studying the basic, translational, and clinical science around normal development of sex hormone production and fertility and creating engineered solutions to restore their primary or acquired loss.
The Laronda laboratory addresses fundamental regenerative medicine questions through the lens of reproductive biology. The main objective of our lab is to develop a patient-specific ovarian follicle niche that will support systemic endocrine function and fertility in women and girls who were sterilized by cancer treatments, have disorders of sex development or were exposed to other factors that could result in premature ovarian failure or sex hormone insufficiency. This research bridges foundational science, translational research and clinical practice.
