Decidual Stromal Cells

The wall of the pregnant uterus is made up of a mixture of decidual stromal cells and immune cells. After implantation of the blastocyst, the hormonal environment and cross talk between the embryo and uterine wall causes the stromal cells to change shape and produce a number of factors to direct the process of trophoblast invasion. We are interested in the communication that occurs between fetal trophoblast and stromal cells and how this regulates cell behaviour.
