Ravinder Anand-Ivell

Associate Professor of Endocrinology and Reproductive Physiology, University of Nottingham

Ravinder is researching the hormone systems which govern fertility and reproductive health in men and women, as well as in domestic and other species, and is particularly interested in how early life experience, including lifestyle and nutrition, can dictate the health of an individual later in life and during ageing. Ravinder is also engaged in the development of a number of novel assay systems supporting both human and veterinary clinical science. Besides reproduction, Ravinder is interested in developing and understanding novel cell-based models for evaluating other tissues, including kidney and adrenal functions. She brings with her a long international experience of research, teaching and supervision from Europe, Asia, and Australia.

Endocrinology and physiology of male and female reproduction in humans and domestic species, looking at foetal development, as well as puberty and adult function, including ageing.
Cell culture and molecular analysis of primary and secondary cell systems from human and domestic species, with emphasis on both male and female reproductive physiology and their regulation.
Cell signalling, particularly studying the role of novel G-protein-coupled receptors in reproductive cells and other tissues.
Sperm biology.
Development of novel immunoassays for the measurement of hormones and signalling molecules in a variety of different matrices, mostly employing a time-resolved fluorescence immunoassay (TRFIA) platform.
