Irina Larina Lab

About the Lab

We are working on the interface of developmental and reproductive biology, optical engineering, and computational modeling and analysis to understand mechanisms regulating normal and abnormal developmental processes. Our approaches combine live embryo manipulation protocols, mouse models of congenital defects, state-of-the-art functional optical coherence tomography technology, confocal microscopy and advanced computational analysis. Through development of innovative optical imaging methods and using them in mouse models of human disorders, we study dynamic functional aspects of these disorders.

Support our Research

Supporting our research will contribute to advanced understanding of infertility and congenital defects, which can potentially contribute to development of better strategies for prevention, monitoring and treatment of these disorders.
