MizzouForward Keynote



Endometrial Stem Cells and Reproduction: Role in Physiology, Reproductive Failure and Therapeutic Implications




May 31st | 11:00am – 12:00pm  

Acuff Auditorium (MA217) – School of Medicine

Join us for “Endometrial Stem Cells and Reproduction: Role in Physiology, Reproductive Failure and Therapeutic Implications" a keynote presentation by Dr. Reshef Tal, School of Medicine – Obstetrics & Gynecology, MizzouForward faculty candidate.  Dr. Tal will present on his research for approximately 40-minutes with a 20-minute question and answer session to follow.


Dr. Reshef Tal is an Assistant Professor at the Department of Obstetrics, Gynecology and Reproductive Sciences at the Yale School of Medicine. Dr. Tal completed his B.Sc. degree in Medical Sciences and obtained his M.D. and Ph.D. in Molecular Biology from Sackler School of Medicine in Tel-Aviv University, Israel. Following a postdoctoral research fellowship at the Lunenfeld Research Institute at the University of Toronto, he completed his residency in Obstetrics and Gynecology at Maimonides Medical Center, NY, followed by a fellowship in Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility at Yale University School of Medicine. During his fellowship, Dr. Tal was awarded a position in the National Institutes of Health (NIH) Women’s Reproductive Health Research (WRHR) K12 career development program, which is aimed at developing reproductive physician-scientists into independent investigators in the field. Dr. Tal has received numerous awards for his research and has published over 70 peer-reviewed scientific articles and 8 book chapters. He is currently the PI on an NIH RO1 grant exploring the role of mesenchymal progenitor cells in abnormal uterine repair.

Dr. Tal’s laboratory is focused on endometrial biology, with an emphasis on endometrial stem/progenitor cells and uterine regeneration. His team investigates the role of endogenous as well as bone marrow-derived stem/progenitor cells and immune cells in embryo implantation, pregnancy maintenance and uterine remodeling exploring their function and related molecular mechanisms leading to reproductive failure. The ultimate goal of the research is to identify new therapeutic targets for patients with reproductive failure.
