Ryan is a PhD candidate in the Endocrinology and Reproductive Physiology Training Program. He is interested in how early embryonic processes play a role in the generation of the subsequent body blueprint. Ryan is investigating how early maternal factors drive embryonic development, with a particular interest in reprogramming factors that drive mechanisms regulating cellular generation of tissues for transplantation and animal cloning.
Some of Ryan’s work was featured in an article by GROW magazine: https://grow.cals.wisc.edu/departments/features/the-race-to-the-animal-vault
