Our research is focused on the study of the early events of reproduction, such as oocyte maturation and embryo development and, the consequences of different maternal treatments and conditions in the reproductive and metabolic outcome of the mother and their offspring. On one hand, our goal is to improve the reproductive outcome of farming females, searching for new and alternative sustainable reproductive and nutritional strategies to be applied in the farm. The group is pioneer in the approaching for the integration of the productive systems strategies based in a physiological basis. On the other hand, we developed some studies of basic science for better comprehension of mechanistic pathways in the ovary, oviduct, and the oocyte and embryo. In a future project, we will intend to approach to the role of microbiome in reproductive physiology in females.
