Carolyn Jaslow

Professor of Biology, Chair
(901) 843-3563

RESEARCH INTERESTS

Histology, Mammalogy, Reproductive Biology, Embryology

Dr. Carolyn Jaslow’s research focuses on reproductive biology.  She is particularly interested in the factors related to infertility and miscarriage, including hormonal, physiological, and anatomical anomalies associated with recurrent pregnancy loss.  She also researches the functional morphology of mammalian skulls and the development and biomechanics of bone and teeth.
