The majority of Dr. VandeVoort’s research focuses on the use of the rhesus monkey as a model for human reproduction in the areas of: (1) sperm biology and cryopreservation, (2) oocyte maturation and early embryo culture, and (3) reproductive toxicology. In order to improve the outcome for all males, not a select few, her research has focused on freezing epididymal sperm and a multifactoral design to individualize freezing extender components. Contraception development is also a major emphasis of male reproduction studies. Investigations evaluate reproductive impact of potential toxicants and the basis for translational studies on oocyte health and ovarian/reproductive tract function.
