Chromosome segregation errors in human oocytes are the leading cause of miscarriages and birth defects and their frequency increases dramatically as women age. Work in my laboratory is focused on defining the pathway of events necessary for chromosomes to ""do the right thing"" during meiosis and understanding the molecular events that cause reduced fidelity of meiotic chromosome segregation as oocytes age.
