Renfree/Shaw Lab: Marsupial Reproduction & Development
Our research covers a wide range of questions in reproductive and developmental biology, using physiological, endocrine, molecular, genetic and comparative genomic techniques. We have a strong research output including over 70 publications in the last 5 years, with papers in leading journals such as Nature, Nature Genetics, PLoS One, PLoS Biology and PNAS. We have just published the genome of the tammar wallaby in Genome Biology that will underpin all the studies outlined below.
The Reproduction and Development laboratory is well equipped and students gain training in a broad range of relevant, cutting edge techniques in molecular biology, endocrinology, physiology and anatomy that will enhance future career prospects. We can take Honours, Masters and PhD students
