About Quint

Dr. Winger is an Assistant Professor of Reproductive Biology. His research investigates gene regulation in embryonic development. This work now involves isolation of germ cells during fetal stages to determine the role of AP-2 ? protein in germ cell development and specification. These studies employ flow cytometry, quantitative real time RT-PCR, ChIP and protein localization techniques. A second area of research involves investigating the regulation of trophoblast stem cell proliferation and differentiation. This project is currently investigating several known pluripotency factors detected by microarray to be differentially expressed during trophoblast stem cell differentiation.
