Ever wondered what happens at the beginning of life when an egg meets its Mr. Right? Or how sex is determined during development? What if things go wrong? Get a behind-the-scene tour with two fertility research labs with Dr Emanuele Pelosi and Yunan Ye, where researchers use beautiful microscopy to see developmental events unfold.

Guided by

Yunan Ye (PhD Candidate)
@YunanYe
Our research aims to improve fertility rate by understanding the fundamental biology behind fertilisation and embryo development using a unique setup of techniques that can visualise in real time the processes of egg maturation, fertilisation and early embryo divisions with in-depth resolution.

Yunan is doing a PhD in fertility and embryo development in the Christopher Chen Oocyte Biology Lab led by Professor Hayden Homer. She is motivated to do research that helps people create families and prevent heartbreaks by understanding what happens at the start of life with 4D live imaging.

Guided by

Dr Emanuele Pelosi (Group Leader)
Our research focuses on the genetics of the reproductive system. We use gene editing and functional genomics strategies to model human conditions in laboratory animals. By defining the molecular mechanisms involved in sex development, we aim to identify the causes of reproductive conditions and improve their clinical diagnosis.

Dr Pelosi completed his Ph.D. in Medical Biotechnology from the University of Bologna, Italy. Subsequently, he was recruited by the National Institute of Health, USA, as a Senior Research Fellow, and in 2016 he joined the University of Queensland.
