DR. REBECCA KRISHER
Dr. Krisher is a Reproductive Biologist focusing on oocyte and embryo physiology. She received her Bachelor’s degree in Biology from Hanover College, followed by a M.S. in Animal Sciences from North Carolina State University. She then worked at Granada BioSciences research division in College Station, Texas, before completing her Ph.D. at Virginia Tech. She worked for several years as an embryologist in human clinical reproduction before conducting post-doctoral research at the University of Wisconsin. She was Assistant and then Associate Professor at Purdue University and the University of Illinois before moving to her current role as Research Director at Colorado Center for Reproductive Medicine. Dr. Krisher’s research program focuses on defining physiological processes within mammalian oocytes and embryos that are critical for subsequent embryonic and fetal development. In her current role, Dr. Krisher is translating these basic research findings into clinical application via improved culture media and new clinical treatments and assays to advance human assisted reproduction.
