About Gerrit

Dr. Bouma is Associate Professor of Reproductive Biology and a member of the CSU Animal Reproduction and Biotechnology Laboratory and the Cell and Molecular Biology Program. Dr. Bouma’s research focuses on the genetic and molecular factors that underlie fetal and adult cell differentiation and function in reproductive tissues. Current research projects include uncovering the genetic control of mammalian fetal ovarian development, and identifying the role of non-coding RNA molecules (microRNAs) in fetal and adult ovarian development and function. A second interest is the role of cell-secreted vesicles in mediating cell communication in oocyte maturation. Finally, research projects are ongoing studying the role of stem cell factors in ovarian cancer development and progression.
