About Andrew Watson

My work is focused on understanding the earliest stages of development which includes the period from fertilization to implantation to the uterus and the beginnings of pregnancy. All of our studies use an animal model to investigate this early period of development. Our results from animal studies can be translated to the human and help clinicians develop better ways of helping couples with fertility problems conceive and have their families. Research has demonstrated that the very beginning of development has a major impact on not only whether pregnancy will occur but also on the health of the fetus, newborn, child and even on susceptibility to disease in advanced life. Thus it is important to ensure that safe and efficient methods are applied in the clinic to ensure that the assistance provided to couples with fertility challenges not only allows them to start their family but also ensures that their family will enjoy the best health possible throughout their lifetime.
