Dr. Vincent Lynch, Ph.D is an assistant professor in the Department of Human Genetics and a member of the Institute of Genomics and Systems Biology at the University of Chicago. Dr. Lynch is a developmental and evolutionary biologist, specializing in determining the causal mechanisms that underlie the evolution of uniquely mammalian traits. He has a longstanding interest in developmental evolution, particularly the evolution of pregnancy in mammals. During both his doctoral and postdoctoral work, he studied the evolution of endometrial stromal cells, including both the evolutionary origin of novel regulatory elements that direct the progesterone response of stromal cells and the evolution of transcription factor functions important for directing the progesterone response. He has also detailed knowledge of endometrial biology and the biology of pregnancy in mammals and other vertebrates. This expertise is demonstrated through currently active research projects in the Lynch lab and through recent publications on endometrial biology and evolution. He received his M.S., Ph.D. and postdoctoral degrees in evolutionary biology from Yale University.
