Prof. Agnieszka Wacławik from our Institute has been awarded the prestigious SRF Academic Scholarship by one of the world’s oldest scientific societies specializing in human and animal reproductive biology.
The Society for Reproduction and Fertility (SRF) has awarded prof. Agnieszka Wacławik from the Department of Mechanisms of Hormone Action, the SRF Academic Scholarship for Reproduction and Fertility. Prof. Wacławik received a grant to continue her research program on „Novel role for estradiol-17β in embryo-maternal crosstalk”.
The project’s goal will be to study the role of estradiol, an embryonic signal in the pig, in regulating the function of the cells from which the placenta develops – the embryonic trophoblast and endometrial cells. New signaling pathways involved in embryo implantation and placental development will be investigated.
The Society for Reproduction and Fertility is one of the oldest international scientific societies related to human and animal reproductive biology, dating back to the 1940s. The SRF organizes annual conferences and publishes the journals Reproduction and Reproduction & Fertility, among others.
