Research Interest

Reproductive biology andEmbryo biotechnology

We use a series of embryonic biotechnologies,such as somatic cell cloning (SCNT), monospermy injection (ICSI) and in vitro fertilization (IVF), to studygamete and embryo development and regulation,with emphasis on gamete-to-embryo transitionandembryonic gene activation.My current research at is focused on the function and regulate mechanism of protein kinase (such as aurora and polo-like family) in the meiosis or mitosis during the special oocytes-to- embryos transition.
