Research InterestsCharles Wood
Dr. Wood’s laboratory is focused on the mechanisms controlling the fetal responses to stress and the mechanism of prematurity. Our experimental model is the chronically catheterized fetal sheep model, and our work combines a wide range of techniques including in vivo experimentation, molecular biology endpoints, and systems biology analysis of transcriptomics.
