Hon Yeung (Dexter) Chan is a Postdoctoral Researcher in the Reproductive Immunology group at the Robinson Research Institute. His research aims to further the understanding and to define the significance of the male seminal fluid in the reproductive process, and the female response to signalling factors carried within the ejaculate. His research will help understand how both paternal and maternal factors contribute to normal reproductive processes and may ultimately, improve our understanding of the causes of infertility.
His current research interests include:
- the identification of the regulators of seminal fluid signalling that alter the female response to conception, such as signalling factors in the male ejaculate and receptors for these signalling moieties in the female reproductive tract
- the mechanisms by which semen contributes to gene regulation in the uterus during the peri-implantation phase of pregnancy critical for female receptivity for successful embryo implantation
