To strengthen Uppsala’s research network within reproductive biology, CRU has offered seed money for reproductive biology research.
The Centre for Reproductive Biology in Uppsala (CRU) is a joint body between the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences and Uppsala University that aims to increase knowledge on animal and human reproduction by applying a comprehensive view on reproductive biology.
The following three projects were granted funding 2022:
- Pilot study on epigenetic analyses of embryos. Main applicants: Carlos Guerrero Bosagna (UU) and Ylva Sjunnesson (SLU)
- Transgenerational epigenomic and genomic dynamics in experimentally divergent populations of artemia. Main applicants: Fábio Pértille (UU) and Parisa Norouzitallab (SLU)
- Quantifying the transgenerational impact of maternal stress upon sperm mitochondria. Main applicants: John Lees (UU), Uppsala University and Jane Morrell (SLU).
