Group for Research in Reproductive and Developmental Origins of Health, Disability and Disease



Welcome to the homepage for the Queen’s University Group for Research in Reproductive and Developmental Origins of Health, Disability and Disease. Here you can learn about the objectives of our group, the broad scope of interests, and research programs of our members, our current activities and collaborative research and the training opportunities that we offer. Please take some time to get to know us better!

Our goals are to undertake research that helps to ensure successful fertilization and embryo implantation, that every individual is born healthy, that women suffer no adverse effects from the reproductive process, that men and women do not suffer from sexual dysfunction and that children can lead a health life unhampered by disease or disability.
