About the Lab

The mission of the Pangas Lab is to decrease the health burden of infertility and menopause through basic science and clinically oriented research.

Our main research focus is in female reproductive biology and female reproductive health. We primarily use novel mouse genetic models to uncover genes necessary for female fertility and ovarian function. This includes developing models derived from ES cell targeting, CRISPR/Cas9 genetic engineering, and Cre-loxP recombination.

Additional, we utilize patient samples typically from women with reproductive disorders such as premature ovarian failure and those undergoing assisted reproductive techniques.

Comprehensive Mechanisms in Reproductive Sciences Training Program

Baylor College of Medicine is now offering a training program sponsored by the National Institutes of Health – Eunice K Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD) for support of predoctoral and postdoctoral trainee research in reproductive sciences. Stephanie Pangas, Ph.D. will serve as the principle investigator for the program.
