HUTER participated in the Norwich Science Festival though the Human Epigenetics Group lead by Prof. Dave Monk from the University of East Anglia which hosted an interactive stand that run from 10-4pm.
The Monk lab participated in the final day of the Norwich Science festival where they had lots of fun disseminating science and research by discussing Reproductive Medicine and the HUTER project.
About the Human Uterus Cells Atlas – HUTER
The human uterus is a flagship reproductive organ with profound implications not only in reproduction but also in women ́s health. HUTER can advance the Human Cell Atlas initiative for the exploitation potential in Obstetrics and Gynecology and biomedicine research areas such as Regenerative Medicine or Reproductive Medicine.
The uterus is itself a model for regenerative medicine since (i) endometrial tissue regenerates monthly and its transformation is executed through dynamic changes in states and interactions of multiple cell types, and (ii) myometrial tissue has remarkable regenerative capacity and extensive remodelling throughout pregnancy. Hence, the primary motivation HUTER proposal stems from the need to better understand the human uterus in order to more effectively address uterine diseases that impact women ́s health such as myomas or endometriosis and/or might contribute to infertility, infant and maternal mortality and morbidity.
HUTER technological and biological platform will be a crucial resource for the scientific and clinical communities to define the cellular basis of health and disease, allowing the rapid development of new diagnosis and prognosis tools and therapeutic advancements in the field.
