We are an ‘omics research group with an emphasis on genomics, epigenomics, and transcriptomics. Our goal is to develop non-invasive methods to predict pregnancy complications before they occur, and to understand the cause of placental dysfunction. We work in the fields of genomics, computational biology, and reproduction.
2023-05-01. Welcome to the new Wilson Pregnancy Lab members! Keaton and Simon will be joining the lab as coop students, and Natalie will be continuing in the lab as a coop student. Laiba will be joining the lab for the summer to gain computational skills for her indpendent learning course. Check out the team page to learn more about their projects.
