Research topics (related to the Institute)

  1. Study of the mammalian cell cycle of oocytes, eggs and pre-implantation embryos.
  2. Study of the response of oocytes, eggs and preimplantation embryos to DNA damage.
  3. Study of response of embryonic stem cells to DNA damage.
  4. Determination of the role and function of oocyte regulators presenting oncogenic expression..
  5. Study of the mechanisms of oocyte aging and its relationship to chromosomal abnormalities, aneuploidy & DNA damage.
  6. Study of the cell cycle of neural crest stem cells.

Research summary

  • The main research activity of Ass. Prof. Marangos concerns the study of the cell cycle and the mechanisms of response to DNA damage in germ cells and during mammalian development. The control of the cell cycle during gametogenesis and early embryo development plays an important role in fertility and embryo development. Furthermore, meiotic and stem cell regulators are involved in oncogenesis.
