Areas of interest
Dr Hue Mai La is a Postdoctoral Scientist in Germline Stem Cell Biology Group working with Associate Professor Robin Hobbs within the Centre for Reproductive Health.
Dr La completed her double degrees of Bachelor of Biomedical Science/Bachelor of Science in 2013, followed by an Honours year in 2014 with A/Prof Hobbs. In the next 2 years, she worked as a Research Assistant within A/Prof Hobbs’ research group and developed interest in fundamental research. She commenced her PhD training within the same group and recently completed her PhD (July 2021) at the Australian Regenerative Medicine Institute, Monash University under the supervision of A/Prof Robin Hobbs and A/Prof Jan Kaslin.
Her research focuses on defining the molecular mechanisms regulating spermatogonial stem cell (SSC) function that ultimately affects male fertility. Her ongoing work investigates signalling pathways and transcriptional networks in controlling SSC function. In particular, Dr La’s work incorporates single-cell transcriptomic analysis to dissect the cellular heterogeneity and dynamics within the undifferentiated spermatogonia during homeostasis and regeneration.
