Professor Larry William Chamley
Research | Current
Major research interests are
- Extracellular vesicles
- The causes of trophoblast deportation and its consequences for maternal physiology.
- Preeclampsia and recurrent miscarriage
- The life cycle of human placental trophoblasts.
- The causes of autoimmune reproductive failure with a focus on events surrounding implantation in and infertility in humans and in particular the effects of antiphospholipid antibodies and antisperm antibodies.
- The biological function of SPRASA, a sperm protein discovered recently by the research team.
