Robert N. Taylor, M.D, PhD
The Taylor laboratory, with some key collaborators Ling Huang, M.D., Sarah Berga, MD (Chair, Ob/Gyn) and Jie Yu, M.D., M.Sc.([Asst. Professor]) has a longstanding interest in human uterine translational biology. Not shown are Erika Johnston-MacAnanny, M.D. [reproductive endocrinology], Michael Kelly, M.D. [Gynecologic Oncology], Jeff Denney, M.D. [Perinatology], Brian Brost, M.D. [Perinatology] and Brian Burgess, D.O., Ph.D. [Resident]. We use a bedside-to-bench approach, deriving primary cell cultures from clinically procured endometrial biopsies. Human endometrial epithelial and stromal cultures are used to study the cell biology and biochemistry underlying endometriosis, endometrial cancer, preimplantation decidualization and the early pregnancy complications associated with poor placentation, including miscarriage and preeclampsia. For many years the lab has had a primary focus on the role of sex steroid regulation of angiogenesis and immune cell recruitment in these physiological and pathological processes. We have ongoing collaborations with the Cancer Center and Departments of Comparative Medicine, Pathology and Nephrology.
