Research Interests:
Dr. Skaznik-Wikiel joined the University of Colorado faculty in 2016 after completing her clinical fellowship in Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility.  Currently, the primary focus of Dr. Skaznik-Wikiel's research is to better understand how high-fat diet influences fertility and to investigate the influence of different types of dietary fat exposure on ovarian function.  She is also interested in the role of cytokines in ovarian biology.  Dr. Skaznik-Wikiel's research​ has been presented and recognized at multiple national and international conferences and published in numerous peer-reviewed journals including Cell, Fertility and Sterility, Menopause, and Biology of Reproduction.  Dr. Skaznik-Wikiel is a recipient of a prestigious three-year American Association of Obstetricians and Gynecologists Foundation Grant to study the effects of obesity and high-fat diet exposure on ovarian function.
