Associate Professor Darryl Russell is leader of the Ovarian Cell Biology and Reproductive Cancer Research Group and Co-Director of the Fertility and Conception Theme of the Robinson Research Institute. Darryl is an Associate Editor for Biology of Reproduction and Reproduction Fertility and Development and Editorial Board member of Molecular Endocrinology. He is a cell biologist and endocrinologist specialising in intercellular communication controlling normal function and pathologies of reproductive organs. His research focuses on hormone action, cell-matrix interactions and tissue morphogenic mechanisms which collectively establish functional organs. Building on unique discoveries of the molecular response to hormones in the ovary has led to the discovery of ‘effector’ molecules that translate the instructions of hormone signals into physiological actions that produce mature oocytes with high developmental potential. His research uses a suite of unique in vitro methods, unique animal models and clinical cohort sampling to discover the mechanisms of oocyte maturation and release by the ovary.
