Blair McCallie
Blair McCallieResearch Laboratory Manager
Blair received her degree in biology from the University of Colorado at Boulder and began working for an industry-leading genetics company in the San Francisco Bay Area where she helped develop breast cancer diagnostics. She moved back to Colorado where she was excited to bring her molecular biology expertise to the field of reproductive medicine. She is currently the Research Laboratory Manager and is studying to obtain her PhD in Genetics from the University of Kent. Her research is focused on epigenetic alterations during embryonic development and what impact this has on implantation potential. In her free time she enjoys camping, hiking, skiing and scuba diving. [PUBLICATIONS]
Jason Parks
Jason ParksResearch Embryology Supervisor
Jason grew up in Louisville and is a native to Colorado. He attended the University of Colorado at Boulder where he studied Health Sciences. Jason is currently pursuing his PhD in genetics through the University of Kent in the UK. Jason is an avid researcher with a particular interest in the embryo-endometrium interface during the window of implantation, the critical time point when an embryo implants into the uterus. He leads the research embryology team and has been working with Dr. Katz-Jaffe since 2007. Outside of work, he enjoys spending time outdoors in the Colorado Rockies. [PUBLICATIONS]
Michelle Denomme Tignanelli
Michelle Denomme TignanelliEpigenetics Research Scientist
Michelle is originally from Toronto, Canada. She completed her PhD in Biochemistry and Developmental Biology from the University of Western Ontario in 2014. Her doctoral thesis examined the effects of IVF treatments on epigenetic regulation, specifically genomic imprinting in a mouse model. She also worked as an embryologist while completing her degree. In November 2014, Michelle joined the team as an epigenetics research scientist and is now working towards elucidating the impact of infertility on human gamete and embryo epigenetics. In her free time, Michelle and her husband enjoy embracing their new active Colorado lifestyle. [PUBLICATIONS]
Nathan McCubbin
Nathan McCubbin Research Embryologist
Nathan attended Hendrix College in Arkansas for two years and then went on to graduate from Colorado State University in 2016, where he received his bachelor’s degree in Biology with an emphasis in neuroscience. While in Arkansas he worked at a wound clinic where he investigated some of the side effects caused by hyperbaric oxygen chamber therapy on patients that mainly had diabetes related wounds or soft tissue infections. He also interned for Dr. William Choi and observed first-hand numerous brain and spinal cord surgeries that helped alleviate some of the complications caused by a variety of central nervous system diseases, disorders, and injuries. His career at Fertility Labs of Colorado began in 2016 working as a research embryologist for Mandy Katz-Jaffe. During his free time, Nathan enjoys golfing, running, and eating the spiciest foods he can find.
