Needs Assessment and Description
This session will detail the role of the progesterone receptor in the regulation of endometrial function. This will be done by demonstrating how mouse models can be used to dissect the signaling pathways in the uterus and define the interaction of the cellular compartments in the regulation of uterine function during pregnancy and in diseased states.
At the conclusion of this session, participants should be able to:
- Summarize the role of the progesterone receptor in the regulation of endometrial development, the preparation of the endometrium for embryo attachment and support of embryo during pregnancy.
- Outline signaling pathways regulated by progesterone signaling.
