The Team:

We believe that great science can only be achieved through immersive team work. This team should be composed of talented, dedicated, and diligent individuals.

We are currently looking for a Ph.D. student with a strong interest in reproductive biology to join our team. Our group is motivated to discover new systems and mechanisms influence fertility as a whole and provide new insight to the field of fundamental reproductive biology.

The prospective student should have proficient knowledge in cell and molecular biology with experience working in a standard molecular biology lab.

It is a plus if the candidate is familiar with mouse handling and willing to learn animal procedures.

If you are goal driven, ambitious and wants to extend your knowledge in the reproductive biology, Send your Letter of intent to All prospective graduate students require to follow SMB admission instruction to complete their application at

Wipawee Winuthayanon, PhD


Short intro:

I completed a B.Sc. (Nursing Science) in 2002 and my PhD (Physiology) in 2009 both from Mahidol University, Bangkok, Thailand. Because of my interest in women’s health, I underwent training in midwifery for several months during my final year of nursing school. To integrate basic science knowledge with clinical relevance, I have directed my interests towards a career path  in reproductive sciences focusing on the reproductive function in women. My post-doctoral research at the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS/NIH) has been focusing on the estrogen and phytoestrogen effects in female reproductive function using mouse models. My research program at the School of Molecular Biosciences will focus on evaluating hormonal regulation in the oviduct and uterus during fertilization, pre-implantation embryo development, and embryo transport using genetically engineered animal models. Our long term is to dissect the estrogen regulation in female reproductive tract during pregnancy.
