Welcome to the Peng Lab
A Reproductive Endocrinology, Cell and Molecular Lab at York University. Our primary research focuses on investigating the TGF-Beta Superfamily of proteins in the ovaries and placenta. We are currently using human ovarian cancer cells, placenta tissues and cultures and zebrafish as models. We are starting more in vivo work in the mouse model.
Ph.D. positions available.
Postdoctoral Fellow Position available. Encouraged to apply for a York Science Fellowship
