About Håkan Billig

Research group

Physiology of the Fallopian Tube and Ectopic Pregnancy

Research interest

Female reproductive endocrinology has remained my primary research interest throughout my research career I have had the opportunity to work on several levels: molecular, cellular, systemic and both in experimental animal models as well in clinical settings and patient materials.

My research focus has developed based on the knowledge we have acquired and in parallel with the fast evolving international research in our and adjacent fields of research and with introduction of new techniques:

  • ovarian metabolism (-1988)
  • growth factor and GH effects on reproduction (1988-1995)
  • follicular development and gonadal apoptosis (1990-2009)
  • function of and metabolic regulation by prolactin on metabolism (2000-2011)
  • progesterone and estrogen receptor subtype regulation and function in reproductive tissues (2003-2012)
  • Fallopian tube physiology and tubal ectopic pregnancy (2006-2012)
