Ong Research Team
Our lab is focused on deciphering the role of Innate Lymphoid cells and immune cellular networks in the architectural organization of the maternal/fetal interface. Dr. Stanic's research program is dedicated to unravelling the cellular networks underlying preeclampsia, intrauterine growth restriction, recurrent pregnancy loss and implantation failure in Assisted Reproductive Technologies. Our lab employs both human and mouse models of reproductive physiology and disease. We use genetic targeting of immune cell development and function to dissect their role in reproductive tissue organization and disease. We collaborate closely with biostatisticians and computer scientists to develop novel workflows for analysis of our high-dimensional flow cytometry data sets and model the reproductive immune cell network.
The role of Innate Lymphoid Cells in Decidual Function
Start Date: 5/1/2019 --- End Date: 9/1/2021
Sponsor: NIH/NICHD 5 K12 HD 000849-28
The goal of this project is to determine the role Innate Lymphoid Cells play in decidual vascular remodeling necessary for healthy placenta and pregnancy. Phase I – current – 2 years, Phase 2 – renewal – 3 years.
