Dr Claire Stenhouse


Dr. Stenhouse is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Animal Science at Pennsylvania State University. Her research utilises large animals (sheep and pigs) to investigate molecular signalling between the conceptus (fetus and associated placental membranes) and the endometrium during pregnancy recognition, implantation, and placentation. She is particularly interested in the hormonal regulation of mineral transport at the maternal-conceptus interface and the mechanisms regulating intrauterine growth restriction, with a goal of generating new knowledge to improve pregnancy success in agricultural enterprises.
