Marco Conti is the Fred Gellert Endowed Professor and Past Director at the Center for Reproductive Sciences, UCSF. Dr. Conti's research focuses on signal transduction required for germ cell development. Over the past 15 years, he has charted signaling pathways controlling oocyte meiotic maturation and competence for development into an... read moreembryo. He has identified critical signals arising in the somatic cells at the time of ovulation that are required to establish oocyte developmental competence. Genetic models that disrupt these pathways and compromise developmental competence and early embryo development have been established.
