VA NWIHCS Friday Research Seminar

"Investigation of Fructose Metabolism by the Sheep Conceptus Throughout Pregnancy"

Dr. Robyn Moses, PhD, is a Postdoctoral Research Associate in the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at the University of Nebraska Medical Center. She earned her PhD in Reproductive Physiology from Texas A&M University in College Station, TX. Dr. Moses’ research is aimed at mapping out the metabolic pathways that are activated during different stages of reproduction, as well as elucidating the initiating signals associated with these pathways. Her notable doctoral work explored the utilization of nutrients by the developing placenta — with a particular emphasis on substances traditionally considered metabolic waste products — and their role in supporting the growth and development of the placenta and fetus, using sheep as a model organism. Her achievements include the USDA-NIFA-AFRI Merit Award and the John and Judy Northcutt Fellowship. She is an active member of the Trainee Affairs Committee of the Society for the Study of Reproduction. She has authored 14 peer-reviewed publications, featuring in prominent journals such as Advances in Experimental Medicine and Biology and Biology of Reproduction.
